This Was To Be The Day

This was to be the day
I asked you to marry.
This was to be the day
I would ask you to carry
my heart to the gates of eternity.
This turned out to be the day
I would turn around and say,
what was it that made things not to be that way?
I look inside myself and ask
why life has to be such a lonely task.
Is it all that hard to find another,
and to bring two souls close together,
in a way that they can let each other say,
this is to be the day that we will marry.
