Looking at these old photograghs,
I am having flashbacks to our past,
Some make me cry, some make me laugh,
I can't believe the time went by so fast.

That was the happiest time in my life,
I had you by my side,
I thought you would become my wife,
then my love was denied.

It was difficult to pull myself through,
I felt like I wanted to die,
It took meáso long to get over you,
but finally I was able to get by.

I am no longer sad and terrified,
my life is becoming more complete,
I have someone special by my side,
she has put me back on my feet.

I have put my feelings for you to rest,
but I still think of you once in a while,
I will always wish you the best,
and now I can face you with a smile!

Moving on yes can relate from the past. Memories linger but you have to allow time to heal seems you have someone to take your mind of her. Happy for you Joe heartache hurts bad.

I think that most of the time people only see the woman as the one to feel the pain in a broken relationship...This makes us see that it's not always the case. You've expressed the pain so clearly.
Great job, Joe...

Even a Romeo can get his heart broken once in awhile. I like the face you with a smile says..Look, I can go on without you, I can still live and breathe! Still just a touch of sadness here though, I felt. Nice Joe...Barbie

It is so hard to move on, it sounds like you've found an inner peace to allow this hurt to rest. Great metaphor in the last line, I see the connection from other poems.
