Allegations made all pointed to her

Evidence bought forth did incur

 

She claimed she was innocent and

Was only used as an instrument

 

If found guilty of committing this crime

She was looking at doing … hard time

Found Guilty

Originally written on February 14, 2014. Today I’m sharing this for Fandango’s Friday Flashback.

FOUND GUILTY!

I was found guilty of committing the crime
A repeat offender – I’ve done years of time
A life sentence now, plus a few
Doing the time, for the crime
I’ve committed with you
 
Not all perfect, I’ll be the first to say
But all so worth it, every last day
Never wanting it to end
You’re my lover and my best friend
We met, we married, we’ve had such fun
Raised three boys
We’ve both wanted to run
 
You’ve stuck with me through all of the pain
Even when I was driving you insane
We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, but never
Has our love once died
So Ha, ha, to the relatives who said,
We’d not survive
Yes, I’ll admit here today,
I’m still guilty of committing the crime
If I could go back and change one thing
All I’d want is a bigger diamond ring (giggles)
Happy Valentine’s Day Al
My lover, my partner in crime
My BEST PAL, of all time
