This Lady: A Song - Poem by Catherine Malchak

This lady's had enough now
and don't you forget it
don't mess with her love
or you'll live to regret it
don't push her around
don't pull her apart
don't use her body
or toy with her heart

But if you know how
to sift through the pieces
of someone who's falling apart
then take what's left of her
and save the best of her
for then she can make a new start

This lady has almost been
pushed to the limit
so don't be the lover
who crushes her spirit
don't push her away
don't find someone new
don't love her today
and then leave her blue

Repeat Chorus


Don't make her your fool
Don't tell her your lies
Don't treat her that cruel
and watch while she cries

Repeat Chorus

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this song back in the late 80's after watching a friend of mine go through a lot of tough relationship issues. I remember after a particularly bad break up, thinking she had had enough and then sitting down and writing this song.

Note: I have all of my poems and songs copyrighted with the Library of Congress in the form of a book. Thank you for reading!
