Will you ever learn ?

You did it again
You let him in
Do you really think he would change
History would tell you that this is not so
So why donít you learn to let go?

Who are you kidding
His feelings won't change
What makes you think that they will
You have to stop this search for acceptance
Before it tears you in two

Learn to accept who you are
Thatís when the healing will start
The time to find the real you

Yes you will miss him
A great deal and more
It will feel like rejection
And you are used to that

So learn from your mistakes
Treat them as lessons
Learn to like who you are
Not everyone feels the way that he does
Not everyone will treat you the same
Learn to trust and love again
But start with liking yourself
