Either Way, I Still Love You

Accidental Poet

Either Way, I Still Love You


Seems forever and a day

Your name my heart has worn

Almost as long since I’ve seen you

To bits most hearts would be torn


Many times I’ve been told

It’s just so sad

That’s ok, I understand

But I’ve never seen it as bad


If I put you

Out of my mind

Convince myself its over

 Leave you far behind


Yes, life would go on

But a life without love

Is no life at all

Nothing worth speaking of


Some might walk away

A decision there to choose

My heart to you I’ve invested

Win or lose


If I had all the riches

All the gold in the world

A poor man I’d be

With no thoughts of you girl


I could never

Forget you Sharon

For if I did

My life cold and barren


And yes life’s too short

To live without love

Might I retain my dignity

Under Cupid’s stars above


And still it’s my choice

My choice to choose

For good or for worse Sharon

 Either way, I still love you

    A beautiful write!
    Love may disappoint
    but it never dies!
    if she only knew that
    your heart will bear her
    name till the end of time!

          Sometimes yes, sometimes not Ron. Fortunately for me it's been a blessing for over 50 years. Thanks for reading and your comment.
