Layla Carpenter Woods stood on sentimental street with diamonds in her hands,
Juan was flirting with disaster, speaking Spanish she didn't understand.
Disgusted by the motion of his hands, Layla rolled her eyes.
She told him "If you don't leave me alone I know this guy..."
She really didn't know someone but decided to look around,
Down the street there was a bouncer to be found.
He stood tall, strong, and fought all around the world,
Although Amos McHenry was a fighter, he had enough charm to attract the lovely girls.
Amos confronted Juan in a dark alley behind the pizza shop,
Amos broke his nose, cracked his ribs and the blood never stopped.
Layla was impressed and excited to see a man of steel,
Amos had no idea the way Layla begin to feel.
Quickly they were a couple and she learned a few things,
Amos spent every penny not knowing Layla wanted a ring.
Layla voiced her thoughts, feelings, and at times she cursed vicious words.
Amos was always too drunk to listen, nothing she said was heard.
One day Layla packed her things and left Amos a letter...
"You don't give a shit about me and I know I can do better".
Layla left town and headed to some where warm,
On the way there she drove through a hellacious storm.
She stopped at a corner store to ask for directions,
She came across a man who craved her affection.
J.P Hawthorne was an English teacher who married Layla five years ago on a summers day,
They have two adorable daughters,
Sabrina and Samantha May.
