New horizons

I know it sounds foolish in truth

All the times I wanted to hate you

But my love just wouldn’t let me be like that

I just broke a bit more and kept on trying

Your lies and deception really cut deep

But your laughter was the hardest to survive

I became the town joke after you became my wife

But I stood tall and alongside you authentically

Out in public where everyone gossiped      

They thought I’d be the last fool to know

We started on the last mile of our relationship              

Until you woke to find me finally missing

Right after a new dawn was broken

Now I’m the one laughing about …a lifetime ago
