Heaven Only Knows

Heaven only knows Why I’m the one you chose To be with for your entire life. For though you’d rather forget, I never will regret The day that you agreed to be my wife. I wish that you could see Just how much you mean to me And the shame I feel for having caused such pain, How my love for you has grown Into a love I’ve never known And I long only to have you back again. They say one never knows What one’s had until it goes And I know now what I’ve lost in losing you But if I could only find A way to bring you peace of mind, I would give my soul to start our life anew.

Too little, too late, as they say. Fine sentiments, but timing is everything, as they say. Rebound and Rejuvenate! ~ gw

A sad verse, indeed. I think many couples who have gone through divorce feel like this, Barry. Good writing, again.
