Stranger in a Photograph

"Stranger in a Photograph"
Dedicated to my Sister @;-->--

You've robbed me of my worth
As a woman, and as your wife
She's just a girl
That you've never met
You don't know her name
She's a stranger in a photograph
And you've let her take my place

You say it has nothing to do with me
But it has everything to do with me
You left me out
Right where I should have been
And you let someone else in
(In your heart, in your mind)
She was the one you were thinking of
And it wasn't me,
And it wasn't me

Remember when I was your forever girl
Will I ever be enough for you?
I was created for you by the hand of God
A woman made for this man
I'm meant to be
Just what you need
Why won't you let me?
Cause I don't wanna share you anymore baby
Cause you're supposed to be mine
But I don't feel that way

Let me love you freely
Without fear of pain
There's so much we're missing out on Darling
If only it was that way
If only you could see
How much it hurts me
And try to understand
My worth is all in the eyes
of the man I love

    This could have been written by me (if I could write so beautifully).

    Thank you for sharing.

    I would agree, we have all been in this place at some point in our lives.

    I appreciate your warm words over at my blog dear one and my prayers are with you and your boys.

    Love you much.

    This is amazing Charlene. It sounds like the heart of a woman who is betrayed by the eyes of her man seeing and lusting after another woman.
