I was thirty eight years old
When you came to me
You told me God said,
“ your help mate I was to be”
Till death do we part you see.
You were forty-two years old
And a mighty Prince Charming to me
I became obsessed with my love for you
I really thought you loved me too.
Things were good for a year or two,
Then Prince Charming became a dude.
Started eyeing other girls and women
Which was not ok with me.
I really thought you was God’s man so I stayed with you.
Love and Truth mean so much to me.
I gained weight and
You were ashamed to be seen with me.
No companionship, just ears to listen
To your sermons supposedly from God
To you and for me.
Now you are sixty six and I’m sixty three
We grew apart somehow and now we cannot agree.
You filed for a divorce today because you can no
Longer tolerate me. My heart feels so sad I don’t know
How I can ever be free,
From the love you once professed for me.
God is the only True Love for me
now for the rest of my life He will be
My one and only True Love you see.
