Point of No Return

What started out as two becoming one
Life tangled up, unraveled, came undone.
And the love which they had both hoped they could share
vanished as if vapor in the air.

No he didn’t mean to hurt her at the start
But somehow that doesn’t mend her broken heart
And though she tries to make the house seem like a home,
the lady spends her evenings all alone.
She gather happiness from her children and her friends
and hopes one day that he’ll love her again
But for now the pain she carries deep inside
is the kind of pain the lady just can’t hide.

So what could change her mind?
What lead her to the point called no return?
Could it be the pain of his cheating game?

She brushes back her long, brown flowing hair
and dries a tear she wishes weren’t there.
As she dreams about the way things were back then
and wonders if they’ll ever be that way again.
She tried to be a lady thru and thru.
But sometimes being a lady is hard to do.
And she wonders if it’s worth the sacrifice
for her to be a lady all her life.

What could change her mind?
What could lead her to the point called no return?
Could it be the pain of his cheating game?

The mirror sees the stranger standing there
and hears her when she says she doesn’t care.
Now the mirror knows she can’t even up the score
but the mirror can’t convince her anymore.
The night held on with fingers cold as ice
pleading with her not to take her own advice.
But she shivered as she left the lady there.
Neatly folded with her clothes upon the chair.

What changed her mind?
What led her to the point of no return?
