One Day

Maybe one day,

we’ll laugh about all of this,

the pain we caused each other,

when we were young and foolish.

Maybe one day,

we’ll grow old,

and we’ll look into each other’s eyes,

and see no pain.

Right now,

the pain feels all consuming,

but that’s the thing about unconditional love.

You love through the pain,

no matter how much it hurts,

because you know it will be worth it in the end.

Maybe one day,

the tears will stop,

and we’ll forget everything that ever caused us pain,

and everything that ever tore us apart.

Maybe one day,

it will all be a distant memory.

Maybe.

I wish that day was today,

but I’ll wait, and wait, for that one day,

however long it takes,

because you’re worth any pain.
