Never look back

If I look back
To that year in my life
When everything turned upside down
And my world was filled with strife

I was stupid and naive
And lost sight of what mattered
I quickly left a wake in my path
Of people's feelings broken and shattered

I fell hook line and sinker
For words of lies and deceit
Instead of working on my life
With the person that makes me complete

Luckily even though not his intention
A wise old man showed me the light
And I started the incredible task
With my husband of making things right

At first it was hard
Putting back together piece by piece
But I stayed focused
As I hoped the thoughts of past would cease

Our bond grew stronger
And soon unbreakable
Something it never was before
Of nothing are we not capable

We are truly soul mates
As we were from the start
Somehow we just forgot
To listen to our heart

So, Look where you are headed
As you drive away
Not where you've been
As you didn't choose to stay

Never look back
In the rear view mirror
As the things in your past
Are what make the future clear

Everything in my life
Had a reason to be
The lying, deceit and games
Are what made me me

I am stronger and better
Than I ever was before
Our love is perfect
And our commitment even more

I know there is a past
In my rear view mirror
But I choose not to look back
And keep my focus clear

It took a long time
To put it all behind me
But my love for him is so strong
He has set my soul free
