True Love Waits

True Love Waits

The betrayal scarred me and altered my soul
I depended on your love like the air
Your actions back then left a gaping hole
I curled up for weeks, a ball on the chair

I was fooled, there was no such thing as love
My trust for people was replaced by fear
What you did, I'd never even dreamed of
I've never lost someone so very dear 

I suffered with disbelief through to hate
When I thought of you, my stomach would burn
I couldn't sleep or eat and I lost weight
All I could do is think of you and yearn

I felt as though life wasn't worth living
Farthest thing from my mind was forgiving

And then we started to talk on the phone
Many years went by before that occurred 
You'd had a hard time and were all alone
My heart went out to you after I'd heard

After a year of consistent phone calls
Then finally we did come back together
We never talked about the past at all
Or about all the things we had weathered

Grateful that we were together again
We would spend all our time with each other
Again on each other we could depend
I sensed that I had finally recovered
I'm so glad that we had those final days
For it wasn't long and you passed away
