Latte’s Lament

Latte's Lament

I watched him frown into her tearful eyes
As I sat alone with a coffee cup
I watched as in silence they both stood up
Instead I was hearing your anguished sighs
From the heated words we shared late last night
A bitter exchange that must be put right
I promised you once there would be no lies
And pleasure the reason I’d hear your cries
Yet sorry is the hardest word to say
And I need to say it so much today
Admitting I am wrong may not be wise
But babe I hurt you and deserve the flack
Whatever it takes to win your heart back
For now, I know love’s truth wears no disguise
