A Million Doves

30

I have seen you from the stars All your tears, your fears, your scars

I have watched you thread your path With no smile, grin, or laugh

The eternal day turned into night Unveiling a presence, a name, a sight

A once lost passion has been reborn No more misery, pain, or scorn

I’ve loved you through a whole lifetime A kiss, a laugh, all once mine

A part of me is filled with glee I no longer cause you pain nor misery

Yet as you kiss your newfound love My heart breaks into a million doves

As you walk down the altar at your wedding reception The words “till death do us part” held no deception
