Second Chances

I once had a lover who was like no other
with eyes so brown and a smile in which you could drown
for a year she had my heart so strong
then things began to go terribly wrong

A beer here, and several there,
the more she drank the less she cared
so I decided I'd play along and drink beside her 
all day and all night it just didn't matter

The beautiful love we used to share
just got up one day and went somewhere
I lost the love I thought was forever
for all we did was fight and hurt each other

Then I woke up and my lover was gone
leaving me to wonder what went so wrong
we had become drunken and so mean
and the love we had could no longer be seen

Then came that fateful day
something was wrong,
I knew right away   
my precious love was almost gone

I found her in the place I had once been
she needed help so I took her back in
I'm told that day that I saved her life
It wasn't me but angels on high

my prayers have been answered
I have my love back again
no more are we drunkards
as we work soberly thru the pain

So no matter how bad things might seem
we all have our angels to intervene
always remember to look up above
for God is full of undying love

He can help us through anything
drinking, depression, suicidal dances
I thank God up in Heaven 
that He gives second chances

for Vawny my love
I love you, always have
always will

    what a great poem, God gives every one a second chance and even A third or fourth if needed, he asks us to forgive others 70 x 7 times and more, I can see your love is true and love can conquor many things especialy Gods' Love, God bless you from diane

    Oh, TuLesha, would love to chat with you as well! If not for "second chances," most of us would not be alive today. You have such amazing insight in your writing. The angels may have helped, but I do believe you saved Yawny's life with God's help. Such talent you have! This is one of my favorites! Too often I've seen friends trying to cope with "drinking, depression, suicidal dances."
