She was wrapped up in a world,
that included abuse and unhappiness.
Never knowing what tomorrow would bring,
there were only sad songs to sing.
Her heart seemed to ache,
with each new day,
like a lovely bird,
now with clipped wings,
she felt trapped in a gilded cage.
Always facing rainy tomorrows,
after stormy yesterdays.
He had gotten some hard knocks,
coming from a marriage –
that crashed and rocked his world.
Love seemed as out of reach,
as the skies above
and he swore that there was no one –
he could love like the woman,
who left him behind.
Then one day it all came together,
the incredible love they found.
Rain came pouring down,
lightning and thunder flashed and crashed.
He was driving slowly along,
just another day in the gloomy world he’d found.
There before him in a cafe,
sat a beauty that captured his heart.
He pulled on over,
heading into the cafe.
He saw that she was crying.
as soon as he approached.
He saw that her attitude,
was as aloof as his when ladies came near.
So he chose to sit down
and he stared at her until she had to smile.
One smile led to another
and they left together.
The rainy day turned around
and the sun came shining through.
It wasn’t long,
before they made a world –
of their very own.
Her world had become a carousel ride
and he had found what he had long searched for.
Now they lived for each other and for their love
and he knew that nothing would ever be the same,
together creating a world of love.
The sun would rise and set on their love,
nothing could replace the smiles she gave him.
It wasn’t long that they exchanged gold bands –
bound in love forever more.
