Can you forgive, if you can't forget
When the painful memories still circulate repeatedly around your head
When an ill-placed word brings on a flood of emotion you'd long tried to suppress
When you can't live with, yet you can't live without
When the love is strong, but then so is the doubt
When the betrayal still cuts like a knife
Turning dreams into nightmares you're forced to relive every night
When a love turns to marriage and then soon to divorce
A fast track love affair that ran wildly off course
When a well-meaning separation feels more like a death
How do you make it through each crushing day when you're entirely bereft
