“For better and for worse”

That’s what he promised her

On that day in April

With friends and family to witness

They recited their vows to each other

Do the vows of marriage have no meaning?

He’s gone

He left her with a broken heart

He left… with vows broken

You have to wonder

Did he mean them at all?

Did he understand the words that he spoke?

Can a man truly stand before God and lie?

What changed?

I hug her as she cries

“This isn’t the way it’s supposed to be”

He’s taken away her trust

In him and in others that may one day follow

For better and for worse

Words we hear recited at weddings everyday

But my God we pray for the better

Cause this is the worst it can be!
