Pride before a fall!



I walked away with broken heart

So sad that we should have to part

But in my mind I’m still with you

Haunted by things you used to do


When fate stepped in and all went wrong

With no way out we followed on

Pride and foolishness prevailed

There were no winners we both failed


Now time has passed but life goes on

And our mistakes should make us strong

But strength is sometimes not required

I’m soft inside but not a coward


If only I’d been soft back there

Without the pride that made me dare

To turn around and walk away

I’d think again another day


Now as I travel with heavy heart

And think how fate did play its part

I wonder was it meant to be

Could we really have done things differently?
