You enter in a whirlwind of flowers
Confetti, white satin and golden rings
Having pledged your forevers
Nothing else matters – for now your heart
Is full of all the goodness life brings
But somehow, you have to learn to play your part
And when the goalposts change or disappear
And you stumble on the ever-shifting ground
That this is love, lived out, and feeling more like fear
Because there are no two ways – you’re in the trap
And left to wonder, if only you had found
Out about all this beforehand, before ‘no going back’
If you could have forseen – known the future first
Would you still have gone through with it?
Would you be alone now – would that be worse?
Or would you still have picked the heartbreak route
Of shattered expectations, broken dreams and shit-
Storms, one after the other; your wonderings moot
Because in the end, love is what it is
Filled with pain and hurt and disappointment
Tearing at the heart you’ve designated his
Yet in the silver linings, there is Good to see
You make things work because of your commitment
And in the end, there’s wonder, and it still feels ‘meant to be’.
