Resolution to my First Love

It’s been nearly two months,
and I’m finally starting to move on.

I cherish what we had for what it was
and no longer expect anything more from you.

I’m at peace with the inevitable
and won’t force you to inhabit my loneliness.

I can be on my own without feeling alone
because I’ve never been by myself.

I will not be jealous of others’ relationships
as I wait in preparation for my last love.

I shall give you your space and rest
in the fact that we had something special.

Just because it’s over doesn’t mean
it didn’t matter to you.

I know now that it was love,
and you’ll always be my first love.
