Husband & Wife

I promise to love you,
For better, for worse,
In sickness, and in health,
For richer, for poorer,
To death do us part.

Where did the love go, after all these years,
Why does there have to be so many tears,
In sickness and in health you said you do,
But now look how untrue,

Why say these very meaningful words,
If you can't stand by them,
To death do us part,
But yet, you can't even feel then in your heart,

What about the kids that are in this too,
No one thought to ask them about what they are going thru,
Broken hearts are falling all around,
Along with a hurtful silence that is found,

Oh yes, there are many grandkids as well,
But grandpa can't see from the spell,
The spell of another,
His new lover,

Oh yes grandma there are many grandkids as well,
But you are under a different spell,
Many kinds of sickness have control over you,
And really bad depression too.

But thats ok, as long as you both are happy and loving life,
Mom you don't need your husband, and dad you don't need your wife,
Your kids are grown now,
We will try to do better some how,

I love you both with all my heart,
But you both tore our family apart,
Now I am left with no parent in my life,
But I make a good mother and one hell of a wife,

I miss you mom and dad,
At one point you were all I had,
I am no longer mad,
Just very sad,

Not one but two fathers are now gone,
Leaving my mother alone,
No matter how weak she will alway act strong,
So I put her in Gods hands where she belongs.

He will love her for better, or worse,
In sickness, and in health,
For richer, for poorer,
In life, and everlasting life,

Our Lord and Savior never leaves us,
Nor forsakes us,
He will carry us when we are no longer able to walk,
He knows what we think and feel even when we can't talk,

He is the HUSBAND and WE the WIFE.
