I wish that I' had ESP, I would have known right from the start,

The things that I found out too late, that finally pulled us apart.

What I found out too late, that I should have heard from you.

There was another in your life, and she had been there from the start.

All the times that we'd been out, since that night that we had met,

I did not have a clue that there was someone else in your life,

Finally, I found out for myself, that put a knife right in my heart,

I found this woman's name was Anne, and in fact, she was your wife.


I felt that I could trust you then, I was so sure that I was right,

You made me feel good about myself and made everything seem bright.

You always knew what to say, the words you used were nice

You had a way of doing things that always turned out right .

We had rides out to the country, and went to the County Fair,

I felt that you had fallen for me,and that you really cared.

Until the day came along when you caused me so much pain,

A day that I never want to be repeated in my life again.


If I could get back at you, for all the pain you caused ,

I would be so happy that I could again start to enjoy my life,

The way that I should have lived it, without all this pain and strife.

You could have saved me so much pain, if you had said you had a wife.

Now I have found a way to erase the pain that you have caused,

Because love found me and showed me how to love again once more.

I can't wait now to start again in this new and exciting life,

A man has just proposed to me and asked me "will you be my wife?"


This proves to me that there always is a way to turn things all around,

That gives you back the will to live again and purpose in your life.

When you've almost given up on life and things really get you down.

You feel that there is no more fun in life for you that can be found.

So everyday now, try to change the thoughts that you had before.

Give yourself a chance to let love again come through your door.

One day soon,someone you'll see will again bring love to your life,

Then they will declare their love for you, when they ask you to be their wife.

      Thanks Lyric and Blonde, your comments are very touching indeed. I am so grateful to you both It was written from the heart, these sort of situations are never easy to put in writing. I was told that if I did this, then it would be good therapy. I guess there are a lot of woman out there today that have had this sort of occasion, where they have been bowled over for another woman. Too true and to many wouldn't you say guys, just too many Beautybabe.

      Thanks to you to Justine for those nice comments about my poem. It is nice to know that there is a good side afterall, when it all seems very unhappy and not a good outcome. Sometimes, it pays to hang in there something usually happens, the rains dry up and the sunshine comes out again. BB

      Beauty, have you thought about writing music and lyrics, or writing lyrics in collaboration with a musician? As I was reading your poem, I could hear them as words to music. Very nice.

      dont forget this....“there always is a way to turn all things around.” I know sometimes I forget, and get stuck feeling sorry for myself. I liked this poem, it shows a view of 'the other woman', that I think many don't think of often. And you ended it on a positive note. Thanks for sharing this.
