On opposite sides of the fence

Two people, strangers no more

But the wire that stood between them

Was locked, like a rusted old door

Love etched upon the metal bolt

And a date they both knew by heart

One they would never get to

The fence kept them too far apart

Defiant, they pulled on the gate

Hoping, the lock, they could sever

For love can never be kept at bay

When you’re fighting for a forever
