What to do?

What to do?
What to do?
For this pain I have accrued
Unfortunately I broke her heart
But this still did not keep us apart
It's almost like we hit restart
What to do?
What to do?
Life was great for this I knew
Like the world revolved around us two
We made joyous memories as time flew
Inseparable like gorilla glue
Until suddenly my life turned blue
What to do?
What to do?
As our countries split us in half
I felt lost like a mother without her calf
I began to miss her beautiful laugh
Not being together was the aftermath
What to do?
What to do?
I do not know what to do
As I lie here without you.

    The “lighter side” of your take of the whole situation comes out in your choice of similes (like gorilla glue, like a mother without her calf) and the fact that you are owning up to the losses that only a proper marriage covenant could have prevented is admirable. We grow from our mistakes so that we don’t repeat them - that’s what we do.

    A sensitive write. It can be tricky with long-distance relationships. Well, same as close ones too I suppose, when both partners are there 'in person' all the time.

      Yes, well we did live with each other for 6 months or so and it was great. I moved to Canada, but I couldn't get a job because I couldn't get a visa. So when funds began to run low I had to move back and that's where things got tricky.
