The Way It Was Supposed To Be - Poem by Ray Hansell

I love you
You love me
Isn’t this how
It was supposed to be?

But here we are
Down life’s road
Our story already
Is so old

We met
We fell in love
We had kids
We divorced

What we both thought
Would last forever
Quickly fell apart
It never got better

But you and I
Both survived
Regardless of how much
We didn’t even try

The kids are grown
All doing well
You remarried
Back to hell

I had already
Been there once
To marry again
Would make me a dunce

Marriage isn’t bad
It can be good even now
I wish all of you luck
Who stand to take your vows
