The Tear Coated Bridge

I thought that you were safe and sound
But turns out you were running around
Behind my back
Behind closed doors

I knew you cheated
I knew you lied
But what i cant come to realize
is what you didn't tell me

That you loved me since that day
that i thought you cared
but as i remember that day
in full clarity

The ring a small
gold band with a diamond perfectly cut
on one knee
you say 'yes'

And as i remember the phone call
He said that you had jumped off a bridge
into traffic
my heart sank

As the week went on i received a box in the mail
small and light
As i open the box
I begin to cry

The box containing my most valued possession
your ring
with a note attached
perfectly folded to fit

Pink roses drawn across the top
and the letter read

My Dearest Love,

I cheated I don't know if you if you knew. I couldn't confront you about it. I was afraid you would be mad and leave me. So I write this expressing my love. I love you with all my heart I cant tell you I am too ashamed. I will die today I have removed the ring hopefully you will give it to someone that can love you more than I ever can. By the time you get this I will be gone. Dont be mad, and I LOVE YOU.
I love you with all my heart and soul signed...

I leave this note on the grave

I knew and i am not mad I loved you too. That is why proposed. Goodbye O I wish I couldv'e said just that. Goodbye. And the only person that deserves this ring is you.

As i walk across the tear coated bridge I say goodbye
I know you will hear me
To my dearest and most beloved
I am comming for you and with that i jump

head over heals
in love with you
they found him crushed under a truck
with a small ring in his right hand
