A fork, a knife, a spoon to taste
Nothing on this table to waste
We all know it isn’t kind to let the table sit.
I was angry because of who I’d become
Angry, jaded, and full of rum
Nothing beats a woman with a grudge.
Then she meets a man with integrity
We were high in trust and had chemistry
A mix you know will last for life.
I told him you can tell her anything
Just don’t leave her dangling on a string
The one she’s been on most of her adult life.
She dangles most precariously
Lives through love vicariously
Yet follows traditions she never knew she had.
Within her is a timid one
Knowing joy and full of fun
You wouldn’t know to see her in the past.
Life took its angry course
She was lost by bitter force
Now she wants to turn it all around.
He, her shadow when she needs rest
Tells her daily she’s the best
That has ever happened in his fast paced life.
Now she smiles instead of feeling pain
Her anger, her sense of betrayal did wane
Now everything is beginning to look up.
The castle is there, nothing changed
Just the future is rearranged
She still has the protection, just doesn’t need it.
One day the wind blew by
She thought of it, nearly made her cry
But now she has him to take it all away.
The sin of where she came
Doesn’t matter when you look up her name
And find out her third means “resurrection.”
You can tell this woman anything
To his heart she will always cling
For he saved her from this castle built of fear.
