Treasure Island

To My Ex-Wife


When I said 'I do' I meant forever
You took it upon yourself our marriage to sever
Treating the one who loved you with such distain
But guess what? I've fallen in love again

The woman I love is the opposite of you
And her love, unlike yours I know is true
That she would stray, I'll never fear
She'll be faithful to me unlike you my dear

As much as you hurt me I have to thank you
For giving me the freedom to find love anew
A love like none I've ever felt in my life
And now I'm asking this woman to be my wife

    Very uplifting Harry. I'm glad you found a new love. My first wife ditched me, and I remarried, to a beautiful, loyal loving woman, so I can sympathise with you - or should that be empathise? I get mixed up with those two words. (Report) Reply
