All’s well that ends well.

I saw your face and heard your name today,

It threw me for a second, I’ll admit.

What my main feeling was is hard to say,

Heartbreak, or grief or loss no longer fit.
Back then, you caused me no amount of pain,
Though I convinced myself that I was fine.
You said I’d never manage to refrain 
From seeing myself as yours, ours, not mine.
I let it carry on for far too long,
To keep at bay inevitable strife.
Though fearful, I decided to be strong,
And walked into a shiny, bright new life.
What lesson have I learned from this whole mess?
That wonderous things can follow great distress.
