Mary

My eyes first met hers that New Years Eve
That night when life would never end
There was a spark but too weak to ignite
That night when life would never end

Twenty one months passed before we again met
That night when life would never end
This time the flame had a chance to catch
That night when life would never end

Days, weeks, months turned into years
Loves roots had taken and continued to grow
We knew that we were meant to be one
Loves roots had taken and continued to grow

Our pact was strong til death us do part
Loves roots had taken and continued to grow
Yet parting was never built into the plan
Loves roots had taken and continued to grow

We loved, we fought, we laughed we cried
Ups and downs just made our bond tighter
Together through it all, always side by side
Ups and downs just made our bond tighter

They said that we would never last yet
Ups and downs just made our bond tighter
But we'd show them what love really was
Ups and downs just made our bond tighter

For years we'd planned of the days ahead
forgetting that it could be gone in a flash
So much still undone but with lots of time yet
forgetting that it could be gone in a flash

I knew it was all scheduled just right
forgetting that it could be gone in a flash
Never imagining she'd be stolen from me
forgetting that it could be gone in a flash

If she had a choice I know she'd have stayed
Life was too good, she was not ready
There was so much love left for so many hearts
Life was too good, she was not ready

Weddings and childbirths, times of great joy
Life was too good, she was not ready
A wife, a daughter an aunt and true friend
Life was too good, she was not ready

Days and nights are now empty, simply a torture
Life was too good, I want her back at my side
I still can't believe that I could not wake her
Life was too good, I want her back at my side

I do not feel solace in where she might be
Life was too good, I want her back at my side
I tried to protect her but miserably failed
Life was too good, I want her back at my side

My Mary was my only reason in life
Now ripped from me, only memories remain
I wish I could follow wherever she went
Now ripped from me, only memories remain

I wasn't meant to do this without her
Now ripped from me only memories remain
Thank god for the comfort of others around me
Now ripped from me only memories remain

I know she would not want me to hurt
I love you my dear and need you to be here
Not want me to curl up and die from within
I love you my dear and need you to be here

I can only hope that time will create a scab
I love you my dear and need you to be here
And something prevents me from picking it off
I love you my dear and need you to be here

That night when life would never end
Loves roots had taken and continued to grow
Ups and downs just made our bond tighter
Forgetting that it could be gone in a flash

Life was too good, she was not ready
Life was too good I want her back at my side
Now ripped from me only memories remain
I love you my dear and need you to be here

That's me above - I keep forgetting to change my e-mail accounts when I post.

Drop me a line some time ...

Grief is the price we pay for love. Very sad reading this post was.

you did a wonderful job on this not only was it heartfelt and full of real meaning,, it followed a pattern, it was repetitive, it was just like life...
