|Love……a word that means so much;|
A feeling that defies all rational description.
Given to us by God Almighty in a single touch;
And expressed by us through confusing emotion.
It is this love that brought us together
That we into a single family would unite
And we promised that it would be for ever
Because our love was intense and not finite.
Years went by and our family grew
Blessed immensely with strength and beauty
Our children went from a couple to twice a few.
Our love for them is a pleasure rather than a duty.
But wicked turns this life on us would play
Our future placed in the vicious hands of poverty.
And our marriage seemed to wallow and decay
Long will this last and we face evil uncertainty.
Tried we did to make things better but to no avail
Deeper down we sank and then ill we got
The task was so great that we could not prevail
The battle tough, loving each other was what we forgot.
Desperate, you sought an escape and found it in a game
Frail I became as I was consumed by self doubt.
I felt I had failed you all and that I was the one to blame.
You found refuge amongst others when I was not about.
Uncontrollably I would rage and curse and swear
Fear and suspicion would eventually tear us apart
My love for you being taunted beyond that which I could bear.
Though I never struck you, my words broke your heart.
I would become obsessive and try as I might
To find out what was going on I began to pry
But push you away I did and you locked up tight.
Until eventually to the arms of another you would fly.
Of this I would learn and my heart would break
For my forever would now suddenly just arrive
And all my trust in you it would take
It is in shock and disbelief that I was to survive.
From that hurt and despair, today I am on the mend.
And stronger I have become as I have moved ahead
So sadly it is our relationship that has come to an end.
And it is in history our story will one day be read.
I forgive you and I have set you free
And I wish that for you eternal happiness you receive
My wish is that one day you will pardon me
Because it is still in love forever that I believe.
