Maria Shaw


A lover's goodbye.


I have broken commandments I deserve to die
don't weep for me for no tears I cry.

You may not forgive my adulterous crimes
but only God can judge me and I pray he won't forsake me.

Let he without sin cast the first stone
let he with out sin place a noose round my throat.

My only hope is I find peace in death
for life has no meaning now love's bond is broken.

I was forced into marriage at such a young age
and my husband will be judged by his domineering ways.

You can punish me as you see fit
but you'll never break my soul or my spirit.
