Long ago a vow was made,
We knew that it was a forever promise.
But life stepped in with a heavy price paid,
In time our love drifted off to the distance.
Who am I kidding, I asked,
Why should I stay in misery,
Where hopes unfulfilled wear their masks,
And happiness is a long lost memory.
This must be the hardest decision,
To walk away from what we built,
But I’m headed to a soulful collision,
Destiny awaits where there is no guilt.
The vow made long ago died
In the midnight hours of silence and tears.
Rest assured, to revive our love, I tried,
But you drifted away through the years.
