I’ll Take the Blame

I'm missing out on my children's lives
Because I was told I'm not one of the perfect wives
I had no clue when I ran away
That we'd be as distant as we are today
Life without them is a lonely mess
We'll all learn to cope is what I guess
To have stayed in a marriage that bad outweighed good
Would have given me nothing but motherhood
It would have given them nothing but argues and fights
Which is what they encountered night after night
My family is broken and I am to blame
But there was no spark to relight that flame
I sought help through family and prayer
Yet couldn't find the answer anywhere
I hoped by my leaving, it would define some clues
But it just lit up my husband's fuse
I wanted him so much to fill the void
Yet my begging just made him very annoyed
I was belittled, picked apart and disgraced
Who would want to stay in such a kind of place?
Well I did because I wanted my family and loved my life
For I really thought I was a good wife
Yet fingers were pointed, it's all my fault
That our relationship was forced to a halt
Well, I'll take the blame and a heart full of pain
And work on a relationship with my children again
