Empty Promises

Empty promises
Sealed their fate
He was gone
His chance too late

There were no words
To make it right
She finally saw him
In a different light

His tarnished heart
Would fool no more
Never again
Would she adore

Insincere actions
Created a veil
Causing their love
To finally derail

If only he’d kept
His promises to her
Their love would’ve lasted
Of this she’s sure
