PRIDE WAS LAST TO GO

The first thing that I noticed
That faded from our lives..
Was the glint of adoration
Which once shone within your eyes.
The second victim of our lives
I watched approach with dread...
Divergence of our interests...
And a coldness in our bed.
I watched our castle crumble
Like the ones upon the beach.
Each time wed try to grasp a part
Wed find it out of reach.
I watched each magic moment
As it withered and it died.
I guess the last to disappear..
Was all my foolish pride.
Pride which caused the downfall
Pride which broke your heart-
Pride which drove the wedges
And made the teardrops start.
Now that its all over-
I just wanted you to know...
Of all the things I loved and lost
That pride was last to go.

There's only two ways you can go...
One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.

Pride always seems to work that way, doesn't it GS??? I loved this declaration of yours!!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...
