~One Step At a Time~

one step at a time
Originally uploaded by AmyLouPics

I might have lost
What we all call:
Precious love
I might have no one
Waiting for me
Or just to receive that call
With gentle words
Saying "Oh Honey where are you"
In her gentle voice
My world surely bloomed
Now all is empty
Filled with sadness and blues
But I will not end in here
All worn out and in tears
I will live
To find my standing point
I will go on
One step at a time
I have not lost it all
I'm still here
With one hope
That keeps me alive
Its one step at a time

More than once
I have been reduced
To *One Step At A Time*

One or twice
I felt I wouldn't make it
Even at that pace

It didn't get
Any easier
With age

At some point
I realized
*One Step At A time*
Can offer
A unique perspective
On the universe
On myself

I lifted my sight
And began to look
At Everything
*One Step At A Time*

Things changed

It's still hard
Never too far off…

But then the circle of fate
Spins me round
And I find myself
Face to face
With one of my past
“Romantic disappointments”
As we talk
I realize that
I have grown
She has not

And it’s different somehow…

Better somehow…

Your first love? Not your first love?
I found its the first loss which hurts the most.
Guess its because of the innocence involved. And the barriers built up after the first loss.
Your words describe it well.

Thanks for visiting; the building is in Iran and caught my eye.
