Grown Apart

In the ash of our relationship
Burned too bright
Died too soon
Our love not portable
From youth to adulthood
We cannot carry forward
Change welcomed by one
And detested by the other
Not meant to stay stagnant
We outgrow each other
You will always love a young girl
Not the woman I have become

    1. Aww, I’m so glad and I love this version.

      I write what comes to me but it doesn’t always apply to me. Considering I’ll be married for 20 years next month, your version is much more applicable to my life.
