The candle lights were slowly flickering You looked so handsome in their glow How could I know that I would never again Have the feelings your love once bestowed The thought that you would ever betray One who would give her life for you Had never even crossed my trusting mind Until you told me we were through What does your new love offer that I don't give How could she possibly care more that I You're starting a brand new life with her While I wallow in misery and cry Years have passed and we've both moved on I've found someone whose love is true But I still can't watch a candle glowing Without bitter thoughts of you Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© May 23, 2007 All Rights Reserved
