Tim McGraw’s song, Just To See You Smile, has these lines in it…
Cause leavin didn’t hurt me near as badly
As the tears I saw rollin’ down your face.
These two lines make me remember October 2010. I had just started a new relationship with a woman I’d been friends with for a year. She was married but was obviously in love with me. I asked her to leave her husband; she told me she never would as he had always been there for her and she couldn’t hurt him. I told her I understood and was going to start dating someone else. She said okay. I ended it that day. She came crying to my house on the day before Halloween and it broke my heart. I waited until Christmas eve to get back together with her and, even though I wasn’t sleeping with anyone, she thought I was and she has never loved me again the way she did before. We are still together and every day I wish for a go-back button to that day I ended it. Her husband left in September of 2011. Never say never.
