It’s a proven fact
The very act
Of saying marriage vows
Does a lot to plow
Those passion filled words
Right into the dirt.
It seems as if there’s some type of rule
That fate steps in, plays you for a fool
The enamored being you wanted as wife
Has now caused you nothing but strife
And then there’s that husband true
Who suddenly sees you as you!
I blame it on the movies and books
Reading the results of romantic looks
Makes you think you’re in a dream
When first love you think you’ve seen
But beware, that passion eases
And then the real life displeases
But this isn’t true for all
My vision might be quite small
I’ve only lived a hundred years
Watched many lovers changing gears
Could say there’s also happiness and cheers
And hope that will assuage your fears.
