A once in a lifetime experience
Or so we always thought.
One gets married to stay forever, right?
And never to divorce, cause remorse.
We trained our minds to think
Of love as something that would not sink.
We made it out to be unshakeable
Bonds completely unbreakable.
That we'd found our soul
with whom to grow old.
Have a hand to hold and a heart of gold.
But this story now must unfold.
You see life happens,
Sometimes people need to grow apart
In order to really grow
And be the goodness that was destined to flow.
So, like when a plant doesn't thrive
You change its environment.
We need to be uprooted, planted elsewhere.
Even unwillingly at times, despite torment.
Each of us is made of love and light
And we should bring out
Just that, goodness, sheer delight
Give someone hope and some respite.
When it doesn't go like this
The story needs a plot twist.
One chapter may close
But fate brings another in our midst.
