A Pint of Happiness
Before we met I thought it all figured out,
then you came along and everything was forgotten.
I probably destroyed us by leaving but you changed the plan;
your drinking and my anger have taken over,
oh why do they have such a strong hold?
If I did not know better I’d say that the bottle loves you more than you love me;
if it cares so much about you then where is it now?
Now I’m out of your life; does it still give you comfort?
I could have given you more than a pint of happiness,
but you chose the bottle and now it’s time for us to move on.
Looking back I feel like we never knew each other completely,
the shame I have for not trusting us is deeper than the love we shared.
Chance after chance was given but like so many before we have run dry.
I hope you forgive me; I hope you forgive you! I hope you remember; I hope I do too:
how precious was our love the day we said, I do! I gave you my all and so did you.
However, sometimes we must let go...and for us it is better to let go.
