Church BellsChurch bells ring in the distance,Church Bells by dkenreeks
and the multitude assembles outside.
The happy couple walks the path,
under a barrage of rice-and-birdseed.
That should have been us...but not to be.
I cry newfound tears at what I wanted.
But when God says "Come Home," you go...
and so you heard your call and left me.
I cannot deny them their happiness today...
I only wish that it was you and I there.
The church bells soon stop as they leave...
to begin a life as one where there had been two.
No comfort awaits me as I turn to leave...
another lonely day, TV, and my bed await me.
Those church bells should have been for us...
but fate decreed that our union wasn't to be.
As with the Ancient Mariner, I am sad and wiser,
but God only knows if I can truly be put to rights.
Another season of days without you awaits...
along with a season of cold, lonely, sad nights.
