When I Got Married

When I got Married

When you are young
And deep in love
It doesn't really matters
What goes on in the world
You feel like you’re lifted
High and wise
There’s this tingling feeling
That tickles inside

This is what took place 
When I met my first love
I felt like I could fly
And soar high above
I thought this was the man
I would share my whole life
And I thought in my heart
That I finally met Mr. Right 

He treated me good the
Times we spent together
We were like glue                                                                                     
Stuck to a letter
Six months after we married
Things began to change
He got so angry if
I mention his name

When I tried to hug him
And show him that I care
He would snatch away and
Act like I wasn't there
When I got married we
Had so much fun
I was left wondering what
Happen to the bond

I found myself holding
His picture, crying and starring
Thinking if he didn't want me
Why did we get married?
Many tears I cried
Holding my pillow tight
Being misled into thinking
I met Mr. Right                                                                                               

I decided to visit my mother
Thinking I could clear my head
I returned home unexpected
To find another woman in my bed
It was stuffy that night
In the mist of the summer
Blind, stupid and ignorant to
Think I were the only woman

All the joy I ever felt even
When we first met
Left my soul, made me cold
And I’m not over it yet
When I first got married it
Turned out to be a joke
A silly little girl, easy prey
Has now lost all her hope

Even though I feel that the
Hurt will never go away
I still feel blessed to have
Known love in a special way                                                                            
I will never wed again
No matter what I do
I can’t take the pain
That I suffered through
My scares will last a lifetime
And for love I will not tarry
Because I will always remember
The first time I got married
