Forbidden Love by T.O.W.
When we met we were both not looking for love
It just happened and then it all went wrong
Feeling like a sign from above
That we had to end it and now you are gone.
The time we were granted was a blessing
The time we were granted was a curse
The memory of it all is still messing
With my heart and every day it gets worse.
The thoughts of you are still so very present
Every day and every night
I do my best to focus on the pleasant
But it is a constant and terrible fight.
You are the love of my life
The man with whom I want to grow old
All I wanted to be was your wife
But something else began to unfold.
You wanted to be with someone else
And that someone was not me
For that other someone your heart melts
And the truth is we were not meant to be.
So we said our goodbyes out of reason
Love still strong but forbidden
It felt like the worst kind of treason
To a love that had to always be hidden.
So this it where it all ends
Without another word
Knowing we could never be friends
Even the thought of that being absurd.
I was always the other woman in the shadows of your life
Hidden away and never to be seen
This was always cause for strife
Fighting about what possibly could have been.
So all that is left is to wish you well
Living a happy and fulfilled life
Even if it puts me though hell
You belong with your wife.
