I have a lovely partner,
my husband of twenty two years,
and four wonderful children.
However I have a secret love.
This love of mine is kept hidden away,
out of sight.
Yet I know it is always there for me.
When others are not around,
I can visit my love once more.
When I do I am transported back.
Back in time to the days when I was single.
I still had my own name,
and a lifetime of dreams ahead of me.
Me and my love went everywhere together.
Oh the tales my love could tell.
Today as a result of the daily prompt,
I felt compelled to revisit my love.
My feelings were unchanged.
I held my love in my arms once more,
and closed my eyes.
A million memories came flooding back.
However I have aged and so has my love.
Time has taken its toll on us both,
but particularly on my love.
Even I cannot pretend we can go on any longer.
So today I said my official Good-bye,
to a lifelong companion.
I have faced up to the fact,
that our relationship is over.
We are no longer suited to each other.
One of the greatest constants in my life,
will no longer be a part of me.
Today I say farewell forever,
to my Doc Martin boots,
and the girl I used to be.
