I always went to church, in God I believed
I always thought I was a “good girl”
How can just a couple moments change a life?
I thought I loved this man, but on that day
He stole my heart, my mind, my brain.
He destroyed my body
On the other side I stood… cold.. alone.
My heart once on my sleeve, now scraps in a dogs teeth.
I silently screamed as I wore a feeble smile.
Lost in that moment, I would never be the same
But, just a couple moments can change a life.
I met a man the other day.
He spoke softly to me when he told me “You’re beautiful.”
Those words felt weightless, valueless.
He took my hand, and got down on one knee.
He said, “Darling, will you marry me?”
How could I trust another man?
But change takes courage, courage to hope in a better tomorrow.
I said, “Yes. Happily!”
One thing is sure, I’ll never look back.
One man destroyed me
One set me free.
Learning to love myself, I will be.
Just a couple moments, can change a life.
