Victoria – Part I. Thirty-Seven Years Ago

My Victoria
I met her by accident
A long time ago

We were connected
The force was overpowering
The room disappeared

So, we said our vows
Water garden and champagne
Candlelit quiches

Then to the mountains
Altitude, attitude, and snow
I still miss the stars

Came back to Texas
Work became a bitter struggle
To do the right thing

Dark seas filled my mind
Love could not cure my sickness
My sadness deepened

I pushed her away
I could not be her husband
We unlocked our vows
