A Farewell to Love

“I choose you.” That’s what she said.
Thinking that these words were true,
joyous thoughts ran through my head.

I chose her and my love grew.
Trusting her, I found new joy
thinking that these words were true.

I watch her go to deploy
for a man who loves her so,
trusting her. I found new joy,

this was it! Now she must go
and I weep. She’s looked quite long
for a man who loves her. So

my heart breaks, I’ve lost my song.
She’s found love but I’m the fool
and I weep. She’s looked quite long

for this love that I find cruel.
“I choose you.” That’s what she said.
She’s found love but I’m the fool:
joyous thoughts ran through my head.
