Divorce Poem

What has become of the Love of our youth

The Two Of Us

© Antoinette McDonald
I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
We used to talk, now I canít speak no more
Iím told I speak way to loud
Nothing I have to say ever comes out right

I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
We used to have fun
Now we canít stand to be around one another
All we ever seem to do is fight

I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
We used to laugh
Now Iíll I want to do is cry
You no longer hold me in your arms at night

I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
We spoke of the future quite often
Now it just seems bleak and blind
We no longer have the sunshine that is so bright

I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
We donít seem to see eye to eye
It feels like we move only mechanically
Doesnít look like there any hope in sight

I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
Nothing seems the same at all
Have we gotten to old to love one another
Has our marriage lost itís delight?
