They were the reason for my jealousy
They made the world seem so divine
He loved her sweet smile with all his heart
And he was the reason behind her smile.
I once heard him tell her
Darling you look pretty in that red dress
He said her face was God’s best work
And that his love for her could never rest.
She was walking along the pavement thinking of him
Of the words he used to say and mean
Of all the nights she held him close
She sees yellow lights erasing all her thoughts
And she screams ‘Jesus! He needs me more’
Lord let her go for him
With her distorted face but the same beautiful eyes
She met him with her heart brimmed with love
She saw no smile no want in his eyes
He held her hands with an empty heart.
While she waited for his enchanting words..
I saw her today after a long long time
She sat there dressed in her same pretty red dress
I asked her where was he
And silence was her self defense
How could she fight the tears that never came?
As I walked away I saw him near the grocery store
He held a pretty woman in his arms
And I heard him say
‘Darling you look pretty in that red dress
Your face is God’s best work’
