Gratitude

You were good for me.
Good to me.
Because we ended
I didn't get the chance
to say a simple thank you.

You changed me.
Mostly for the good;
some brokenness too.
And for both
I give you gratitude.

The beauty of your body
lingers in my mind.
The taste of your love
is still bittersweet
on my tongue.

I harbor great sadness
that we went our
separate ways.
I deeply regret that
I could not make it work.

I look forward
to the time
when it is pleasant
to remember you.
But right now
it still hurts.

For all of it
I am grateful
and would not
have it any
other way.

Even though
I lost you
you were
the answer
to prayers
that I prayed.
