It's OK....

It’s OK to cry
It’s OK to say goodbye
It’s OK to shed some tears,
For what was, will never be and what simply passed us by.

It’s OK to look ahead
At a future dark and scary
At the mountain of aloneness,
Insecurity and dreary
Moments of despair.

It’s OK to face a life so different
To that planned
By a river, on the couch,
On the beach and in the garden.

It’s OK to face mistakes
About people who became
Nothing like the picture
We made of them in the frame
Of our mind.

The reality – it is nothing
Like I thought,
Believed and hoped.
The truth is ugly, shameful,
Creepy, but I hope, not my fault.

I was being optimistic,
Hopeful, young and naive.
Now I feel old and sad
And more defeated with each truth that I receive.

Moving forward to a life
I never wanted, that I know.
Yet a life, nevertheless
Which, in time might even grow
To be a blessing in a way I never dreamed.

I really hope so,
But for now, I need to cry
And grieve
For what was,
For the people that we were,
Once, maybe, in our dreams.

It's OK....
