LETTER THAT CHANGED MY LIFE

c2018 Brian Beecher


Tension between family
And relationship of you and me
Had caused me to say goodbye
At heart both sides wanted peace
But for a long time it was not to be
And there were so many nights when I would cry

I want to express my gratitude
For the good times that I had with you
And I would be proud to be your wife
Those very words you wrote me
Would send me to a new high
That was the letter that changed my life

Who we think weíre supposed to be
Didnít sit right with my family
Our feelings and needs be damned
But Iím the one who was suffering
At the expense of my hopes and dreams
And Iíll make it up to you the best I can

I want to express my gratitude
For the good times that I had with you
And I would be proud to be your wife
Those very words you wrote me
Would send me to a new high
That was the letter that changed my life
