I loved you for such a long time,
Maybe I took for granted you’d always be mine.
We had a life, we had a history;
We had love, we had an unspoken chemistry.
We have come to the end of this romantic episode,
As you are willing to leave and hit the road.
I know that in the course of relationships things change
And as situations occur, priorities get rearranged.
Unforunately, in this busyness and bustle,
Two people get lost in the shuffle
Of life, career, family, illness, money, it all piles on
And before you know it, those two youthful kids are gone.
The youthful kids are replaced by strangers
Who did not see the unheeded dangers.
