This poem is a cliche,
Like all small revelations are.
Today I learned
You can love
And not be together.
It was nice to talk.
It is always nice to hear your voice,
Even though it hurts now.
Today, we smiled, and it felt good
These tiny steps we take
To navigate the terrains we leaped over.
And I learned to appreciate another shade of
All that matters is love.
Today, I knew I would love you, always
And that we would not be together
And that was okay. Today I smiled
I hope you did too.
