You could have had it all

Contributed by futuremoves on Monday, 27th June 2016 @ 09:53:01 AM in AEST
Topic: anguished

My truck paid off
I/'/m ridin free
My insurance low
You better believe

A condo owned
Collectin rent
No mortgage there
Not a single dent

My house payment
I told you low
$0 a month
Outright I own

Property taxes
You can/'/t escape
The city wants
What I make

Income taxes
Every week
The federal Guvments
take is steep

Though G/'/s are stacked
stocks and bank
2 mil there
My pops I thank

Future secured
Decisions I make
Careful with every
Move I take

Now you know
What I wouldn/'/t share
before a ring
I wouldn/'/t dare

I wanted someone
Who really cared
Who/'/d fight with me
If times grew bare

But you ditched me
When I conveyed
We may struggle
With bills I pay

It was a test
To see the truth
Poof you/'/re gone
like Scooby Doo

30 DAYS passed
Your silence cruel
Leavin/'/ me crushed
I/'/m such a fool

So now you know
Because of that
There/'/ll be no ring

There/'/ll never be
a you and me
My heart and mind
you/'/ve lost the key

So DON/'/T come back
Don/'/t even try
Not for me
That ships gone bye

That moments gone
There/'/s no return
That trains derailed
That bridge got burned

Lessons hard and
they come fast
Regrets are felt
by lookin back

You chose security
Till you find it all
But there/'/s only one me
You will recall

On those darkest nights
When you can/'/t believe
Remember YOU chose
to set me free

Yep, the testing times are important BEFORE you commit.
lots of truth in this one.
