A Decision Made

I broke your heart to make a new start
We were at odds
Completely falling apart, or so I thought
Time passed
Conversation lost, silence mostly from the call
Marriage, child, divorce, year upon year
Surprised I found you, revenge grew in you
A best friend and lover lost
From a decision made
Nothing less expected
It was my fault
Life, career, different paths taken
Contact again, maybe this time we could be friends
Silence, darkness
I was the one left hanging
Hours, days, years went by
Wounds re-opened I couldn't take it
Then an unexpected apology
Happiness, moving on with friends and family
Regret, forgiveness
You finally made peace
We talk, we laugh
But true love still remains
From a decision made
