Today Is A Tragic Day.

Today is a tragic day…


Please bow your head and pray,

Today a young girl gives her soul away,

She who was once free is now a slave,


Today is a tragic day…


Pilled high in her hands is a rose bouquet,

As she stands frozen- unmoving,

He lifts the veil away,

All is as silent as the grave,

Where her lost soul will forever stay,

All is as silent as the grave,

Except the wind which seems to mournfully say…


Today is a tragic day…


He misreads the tears,

That now run down her cheeks,

For happiness and love,

All the things he seeks,

She wants to go back,

But now it’s too late,


Today is a tragic day…


As the preacher speaks the well known words,

She searches for that familiar face,

But she does so in vain,

For her Mother made it plain,

That she would not be seen,

For Layla- having turned eighteen,

Was no longer her to claim,


Today is a tragic day…


Then it’s all over,

As the ring slips on her freedom slips away,

The wind gently dries the tears that still remain,


Today is a tragic day…


Please bow your head and pray,

Today a young girl gives her soul away,

She who was once free is now a slave,


Today is a tragic day…
