The Memories That Remain
How do I make this aching pain go away?
It only gets worse and worse everyday.
Nothing makes it better, I just don't know what to do.
The only thing that I need, but can't have, is you.
Since the day you left, teardrops just fall like rain.
Everything means nothing, only the memories that remain.
Memories of us, and how much love was there,
Relentlessly haunt me, almost too much too bear.
Nobody knows that without you, I'm dying inside.
It kills me just thinking that you hate me because he lied.
I know he told you things about me that are untrue.
God only knows the horrible lies he has been telling you!
I'm not allowed to say anything to you, in my defense.
How he's gotten away with this, just doesn't make any sense!
I'm completely hopeless, unable to put up a fight.
I don't know how any of it is possible, or what even gives him the right!
I raised you alone, with nothing, no help from that prick!
The way he came along and stole my baby makes me sick!
What the hell am I supposed to do without you now, I don't even wanna know.
Everything I've tried, has failed, this time goes by so slow.
Two more years until the day I can talk to you once more, unless he finds a way to forever close that door.
I know I'll probably never hug you again, your precious face by I'll never see.
If I could, I'd give u the ability to forget you ever loved me.
Maybe then it would be better for u, let me take away your pain.
Mommy will take all the hurt away,
And the memories that remain.
