I think, I thought, I knew

I think, I thought, I knew
i thought this time
                that i’d be fine.
(I’d Learned so much from You).
i thought this time
                i had a plan.
(I’d Know just what To Do).
i thought this time
                there’d be no pain.
(I’d just Remember the times We’d shared).
i thought this time
                there’d be no tears.
(I’d Smile instead, knowing just how much You cared).
For days, then weeks, then months I Thought
Since thinking made it easier not to Feel.
But when at last my Thinking stopped, I Knew:

                it just takes time to heal.
