When we first met, it was love at first sight,
This was a love that was true and right.
We met in spring when new life was bursting through,
By summer’s end, We both said I do.
That fall and winter were the best in my life,
I was loved so proud to be your wife.
We had more springs and summers and falls,
Loving you and being loved, I had it all.
We had one wish, that would surely come,
The time was right I wanted to be a mom.
I knew you would be a perfect dad, then,
I began to see things that made me sad.
One winter I was more on my own,
Even together, at times I felt so alone.
That was when I started to cry,
I knew in my heart-you had begun to lie.
Spring came with all things anew,
Maybe our love could be renewed.
After all Spring was our special time,
Perhaps again I could make our love shine.
One fine spring day you suggested a walk,
You said you needed to talk.
My heart soared; I had hope and trust in you
You said sorry, you met someone, and we were through.
We were done and immediately we must part,
This woman, wanted your new lives to start.
I wanted to scream to plead and beg,
However, I couldn't I left a lot unsaid.
I mourned the loss of you - also for the lives' unborn,
This other woman; filled me with hate and scorn.
I hated her. I loved-hated you, and I hated my life,
A shattered bleeding heart- no longer wanted as your wife.
I used to dream you would come rushing back.
You would declare your love, and we would make a new start.
Prayers pleading to God asking him -to make you see
That when you said I do, it was forever you belonged to me.
I heard about you from mutual friends,
That you and your new woman came to end.
God answered my prayers and had set you free,
My heart’s beating again- would you come back to me.
I dreamed and thought of how it would be,
Re-united for all eternity then,
Remembering the pain and hurt you caused.
I realized with no trust that our love was lost.
We are now in the past.
I’ve accepted that our love did not last.
Will I be like you and move on to someone new?
I promise myself, one day I will when I stop loving you.
