The first I went thru the motions,
Just took my turn,
Never really realize
The slow and steady burn.

When it was over
And he had had enough,
I was getting started,
Although the road was rough.
Though he had fallen out of love,
Needed to start on a whim,
I had had 7 years
To fall in love with him.

When it was over,
We both knew it to be true,
That was when we could have reset,
But not what he would do…

Second chance at love and marriage,
but was it ever real?
A chance to truly show that I care,
To prove how I feel?
But the sands flowed to fast
And it did not take long,
Before the sands had run out,
And then you were gone.

I was left shattered,
Although I knew the day would come,
And quieted the bitter rage,
Solace being numb.
Gone too soon,
but at least in those bitter sweet days,
I was there to guide you through,
Offer love and praise.

Third chance at love and marriage,
The sweetest loving man,
And I corrupted,
Did everything I can.
Darkening the soul,
Bent him to my will,
Made him too dependent
Then went in for the kill.

Realized my corruption,
Tried to save his soul
Put the pieces together,
Tried to make him whole,

My actions far too late,
Carved him before I could see,
The shape that he became,
I found completed me.
