Poet's Notes

I wrote this poem because this happened to a very dear friend of mine. She felt very betrayed and hurt and then a little while after she had recovered, she found a really good man. She is very happy now. I know this happens to a lot of woman, this is for all of these women also and I hope they all find some peace in their lives in some way.

Your Betrayal

I wish that I' had ESP, I would have known right from the start
The things that I found out too late, that finally pulled us apart
What I found out too late, that I should have heard from you
There was another in your life and she had been there from the start
All the times that we'd been out since that night that we had met
I did not have a clue that there was someone else in your life
Finally, I found out for myself, that put a knife right in my heart
I found this woman's name was Anne and in fact, she was your wife

I felt that I could trust you then, I was so sure that I was right
You made me feel good about myself and made everything seem bright
You always knew what to say, the words you used were very nice
You had a way of doing things that always turned out right
We had rides out to the country, and went out to the County Fair
I felt that you had fallen for me,and that you really cared
Until the day came along when you caused me so much pain
A day that I never want to be repeated in my life again

If I could get back at you for all the pain that you have caused
I would be so happy that I could again start to enjoy my life
The way that I should have lived it, without all this pain and strife 
You could have saved me so much pain, if you had said you had a wife
Now I have found a way to erase the pain that you have caused
Because love found me and showed me how to love again once more
I can't wait now to start again in this new and exciting life.
A man has just proposed to me and asked me"will you be my wife?"

This proves to me there always is a way to turn things all around
That gives you back the will to live again and purpose in your life
When you've almost given up on life and things really get you down
You feel that there is no more fun in life for you that can be found
So everyday now, try to change the thoughts that you had before
Give yourself a chance to let love again come through your door
One day soon,someone you'll see will again bring love to your life
They will take you by the hand and ask you to be their wife.

    HG, This happened to my best friend and It gave me a reason to write the poem. I felt so bad for her. My first marriage ended from an abusive and possessive husband. He pushed me over and I fell down stairs. I was five months pregnant at the time and she died in my womb due to the umbilical cord being severed and stopping her from getting oxygen.I left him some months later, Seven years later I fet my husband. We've been married 23 years March this yearl I don't need to tell you how special he is. Love to you Pam x
