Pushing her body to breaking never helped anyone
Unless you were talking about her guilt
Now she was here and wondered if this time she had gone too far
It seemed to make sense in the heat of the moment
So now hanging on this rockface fifty feet up and her strength giving out, she wondered
How did eating a single extra Oreo do this to her?
Maybe she should have gone to church more often
Any time things got rough she would break down and go
So now here she was, talking to the priest about her cancer
Sometimes it helps to find someone to help to with the heavy lifting
So that was the moment he pulled out the engagement ring.
That caught her off guard. She wasn’t ready yet, but was that her doubt talking?
Only here was the large diamond breaking the light into rainbows in her face.
Now was when she had to make the big decision, not later. What should she do?
Eventually that became the bedrock of the rest of her life.
Dexterity was never his strong suit
Except when it came to his cleverness with words
Fast-talking was how he made his living
That slight of tongue showed true nimbleness
