They were right in the end J
all of ‘em
the pundits of gloom & doom
knew the catastrophic mistake
we were making
we were never meant to be together
some preordained prophecy
manifesting itself
having lived longer than you
I think
It’s fitting on your 36th birthday to say
I have not met
a better man than you
on a day like this
it breaks my heart
that they were right
this world
had no place for us
we didn’t belong

Doesn’t stop me
from hoping for miracles though
wish you were here……
