Choices

Forgive and forget; let's both move on.
It won't happen again; my sin be bygone.
Your friends think you're crazy and shouldn't forgive.
I won't live it down as long as I live.

It's just you and me against all the others.
These women you know are not our mothers.
You don't need them; you only need me.
We've got our love; We'll be happy, you'll see.

"But I like all my friends," she says with chagrin.
He says, "You'll move on and make new friends again."
And so with much sadness, she lets them all go.
Confused and upset, for why they don't know.

They love her and worry, afraid she'll get hurt.
But all they can do is hope she'll revert.
If she needs them again, they will be there.
For no matter what, they'll always care.
