A thousand lifetimes ago, you stole me away.
And I became your wife even though I was only 14.
We came to love each other but our time was short
I died giving you a son.
And in a thousand lifetimes our love was bittersweet
It would seem that happily ever after escaped us.
Again and again, we met, but our love never succeeded.
You died or I did, but we never had forever.
In this life, we were so very young when we met.
How could it have worked, we were barely more than children.
After we parted, I thought my heart was broken.
But life went on and so did I.
I met a good, kind man and married him.
We have been married and in love for almost 50 years.
Now you’re here asking me to, what?
Leave him and run away with you?
You’re too toxic for me to survive you again.
Get back in your car, drive away, and don’t look back.
As I watched as your tail lights disappeared.
Life after life, love always escaped me.
I felt someone behind me. I turned to look
and there was his beloved, handsome face.
He held out his hand to me and as I’ve done for the
last half-century, I put my hand and heart into his hand.
He is my happy ever after.
