About the Poem

This poem was one of my first, so please bear with me. I wrote it to my husband when I found out there was another in his life. I was deeply hurt by all this and since I had a hard time telling him how I felt, I wrote it in a poem. It has helped me express my feelings.

The Love of a Betrayed Wife

The love we shared was special,
The times we had were passing,
The memories we made were happy,
The moments everlasting.

The friendship we had grew strong,
The love we had grew weak,
Our relationship grew binding,
But our future seemed too bleak.

I thought it would work,
The promises would prevail,
Our marriage could be saved,
I didn't want it to fail.

I gave you chances,
I let you make your mark,
I looked like a fool,
You kept me in the dark.

We have a special girl,
She's as special as can be,
She's our little angel,
A big part of what use to be you and me.

I made our girl a promise,
I would love her with all my heart,
Even when I find love again,
We'll never grow apart.

I hope Dear,
You will do the same,
For our angel is too precious,
And she is not to blame.

I know I will forgive,
I know I will survive,
I know I will move on,
My special guy will arrive.

You have done what you want,
And said what you will,
Soon you will see my dear,
That the pain you feel is real.

No longer can you change it,
No longer can't you see,
That everything you have put us through,
Can only benefit our special angel and me.

I'm sorry to see us end,
I'm sorry to see you lie,
I'm sorry to see you with her,
See your reputation die.

I will always love you,
As you will always know,
I will always have our moments,
Every time you turn and go.

I'm really saying goodbye,
I'm really saying farewell,
I'm really saying I'm sorry,
For this little bit of both heaven and hell.

This is really true. This is what happens when you LOVE Someone more than he or she does. I had similar experiences. Similar bitter experiences. But i know i have come over it. which i know might be difficult. but i will have to.

To betrayed wife, Thank you for the beautifully written poem, you summed up what many of us betrayed partners feel. My fiance did this over a 6 mth period, and all my friends knew about it but me, What a fool i was. I no longer have this friends as they're not real ones. I hope you found the courage to either seek counselling for your marriage or moved on to someone who doesnt take you for granted, best wishes Sam

THE PAIN IS REAL WHEN YOU LOSE SOMEONE WHO YOU THOUGHT WOULD ALWAYS BE A PART OF YOUR LIFE, BUT SOMETIMES FATE HAS A FUNNY WAY OF TELLING US, WHEN YOU LOSE YOU ACTUALLY WIN. I AM GLAD I LOST HIM, FOR IF I WOULD HAVE KEPT HIM I WOULD HAVE NEVER FOUND MY TRUE SOUL MATE, THE ONE WHO COMPLETES MY EXISTENSE ON EARTH.

I loved your poem, as I wanted to say the same to him. Only that I am the other woman. But the pain of betrayal I feel is no less than yours as we had a long 12 years happy relationship, where he fooled me thoroughly and I allowed him with the fear of loosing him. It was so easy for him to just go away when he wished, without any trouble. As I have no legal or moral right on him, I just left to myself with my grief.
