First and Last

You were the first 

And hopefully the last

You were the first one to see me 

And the last one to love me

You were the first one to listen

And the last one to hold me

You were the first one to help me 

The last one to heal me

You were the first one to understand 

The first one to feel me

You have seen my mind and soul

The first one to see the truth

And right through the starring role

I played for 40 years or more

In a torturous hellhole

You took my hand and pulled me out

And let me into your life

So I could shed the painful shell

That trapped me as his wife

You helped me find my own way out

Painful though it was

A precious gift without a doubt

Last love is just for us
