Wedding bells are ringing,
you are smiling, she is crying,
Five children, the baby just,
three months old,
How could you marry him,
knowing he was leaving her for you?
Yes I know he asked you to marry him,
but you could have said no,
You could have looked at the four children,
and the baby and tell him not to be heartless,
She stood outside the church crying,
her three-month old baby in her arms,
You walked past her smiling,
You were dressed in white,
but your heart was dark,
Don’t you not know that you reap,
what you sow?
Someday she will be the one smiling,
and you will be the one crying,
when he leaves you for another.

    genuinely she was selfish, still, what struck my mind was ‘if not she, another’… the real culprit is the man, who relished moving from flower to flower & the last stanza conveyd the ultimate truth…

    Don’t you not know that you reap,
    what you sow?
    Someday she will be the one smiling,
    and you will be the one crying,
    when he leaves you for another.

    & loved the lines

    You were dressed in white,
    but your heart was dark

    very touching poem dear…..

    love,

    Rose
