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.
