I’m Afraid our relationship 

Will Soon End


By Brian Lee Clements


We’ve been together about 12 years


And there have been many tears,


I know that we have disappointed each other,


Maybe that's why we shouldn’t be together,


We have gone through many ups and downs,


And even went out on the town,


And now we have come to a point in our lives,


That we may need to say goodbye,


Did you know the time in Germany


Really meant a lot to me?


Meeting your family and all who were there,


It was pretty cool and we all got to share,


One of the times when it really got tough,


Was when I got laid off and it was really rough,


I’ve known for some time now that you were not happy,


And I don't know how to change your feelings for me,


I’ve done all I can to get you to smile,


It’s hard to figure out which buttons to dial,


I know that every road has a bend,


But, I’m afraid our relationship will soon end.

Stick with it! Sometimes life appears bleak, it’s never easy, but it isn’t easy to be single either! It sounds like there’s still love in what you have, walking away from that is something you will regret more than it hurts to stay & suffer it through!

Show her your heart, really impart; Walk hand in hand, tell her she’s grand!
In order to get to her inner core... You’ve got to convince, she means so much more!

Such a sad lament. Defenatly relatable to many out there. So sad when what should be simple and easy becomes needlessly complex. At least there are some ups as well.

Sometimes relationships have no need to end, but, instead, to simply change from close and intimately personal to more distant in remaining friends and no longer lovers ... Enjoyed your thoughts set to pen of page ... Will be taking a look at your stories in due time ...

Nice to meet you, by the way ...
