Look at me! I have survived!
My sense of self has now revived.

Your mental barbs no longer haunt,

I’m free of your every jibe and taunt!

 I’ve fought my way out of the soulless dark,

‘Cause your poison no longer makes its mark.

An angel stepped into my ravaged world

And with her aid, my wings unfurled.

With love, with care, she set me free,

She returned me to my sense of me.

My darling, I don’t think you’ll ever know,

Just how your love has let my spirit grow.

You swooped into my heart and rescued me,

You broke the chains, you set me free. 

You are my heart, you are my life, 

You are my beautiful, gorgeous wife.
