She dreamed of the day things were different between them
But she realized she must be tender with herself, and how things are now
She wished with her whole heart that his eyes had a different view
But she realized she must concentrate first on what it is she sees
She hoped beyond hope that he just gave her a chance, a moment, a brief sliver of time
But she realized that if he did not desire that, than that is how it was meant to be
She just wanted it to be easier
Not hurt so much
Not take so long
But she knows the universe is hard at work
And she can surrender to that thought
Things have a way of working out
They always have and they always will
And when that day comes
She will then cross over

Surrender. What a beautiful word.

Sending love tonight, hoping it hugs the hurt just a little bit.

This is how I felt after my last break up and as soon as I "crossed over" I met the man I will soon marry :) What a beautiful poem, even with its sadness
