OUR SECOND TIME AROUND ©2017 Bill Murphy
She got herself a lawyer, And I got me one too.
We divided up the furniture, And a memory or two.
Then she gathered up our children, And hit the dusty trail.
Her final words in parting was… “Sweetheart, You can go to-
Well – she actually was leaving, Oh the bitter fruits of sin,
Oh how could a love so wonderful, Come to such a shameful end?
Now God looked down from heaven, And it grieved Him to the bone,
To see the mess that we had made, Of our once, happy home.
Those precious little children, Need a mommy and a dad,
So I think I’ll work a miracle, And give ‘em back the love they had.
He knew our love still lived somewhere, For can love really die?
Only fools will lose a treasure, But the fools can’t tell you why.
God found our star of love still bright, Out in the Milky Way.
That one star in the billions… Was the love we’d thrown away.
Our story is a miracle, Our lost love has been found,
With God’s help we’ll do better, This second time around.
