I’ll take My Bow: John R A Smith. May 2008. Copyright.


The sky has grown darker, as has my heart

Did you think it would never heal again?

Never Love, and been all alone

You turned your back on me, left me

Maybe I deserved your treatment, all those

Empty words

You won my heart with flowers and laughter

And love.


You departed leaving me to feel the shame

To you this was all but a game

Like an actor on stage you took your curtsy

Having played your part, you then stole my heart

With words of Love and gain.

But now I’m changed and playing my part

Life’s curtain changes, the scenes anew

New actors can appear, my hearts healing

Playing its harp to others in the crowd

I’ve learnt my lines, the script been rewritten

But this time its without you.


I’ll take my bow, I’ve learned my part

Like an actor, I’ll win new hearts

No more tears, no more pain, just laughing

And fun

I’ll take my bow, life’s curtain is closing

My life is beginning, this time without you.

Your words were so fancy, winning my heart

You acted Oh so well, the blood-stained sheets

Are your only prize.

My heart will never be yours, my love will

Be for another

You taught me so well, a tutor a master

I learned my part, now the curtain is closing.


I’ll take my bow, I’ve learned my part

Like an actor, I’ll win new hearts

No more tears, no more pain, just laughing

And fun

I’ll take my bow, life’s curtain is closing

My life is beginning, this time without you.

This time without you.
