Oh, such a grand love affair we had Our time together was rich and good Not one thing ever seemed bad We lived together for sixteen years Never doubting, never wondering Our deepest love contained no fears Then one morning the dawn was dark The sky was black and ominous Destruction followed one spark He left me then, in a whirl of flame Stealing every single thing I owned My heart would never be the same Such devastating loss, oh how will I heal? With so much ripped violently away I must be dead, I’m numb, I cannot feel Then time begins its healing march and life begins to restore my heart Upward, onward, in a rising arch Now there’s a new love on the horizon promising beauty and serenity But how do I know it’s not a con? Dare I open my heart to a new abode? How much grief can one soul hold? Am I ready, or will I implode? Update: Absolutely ready, I’m in love with my new home!
