Middle of the bed


Took 4 years to sleep in the middle of the bed
4 years to not think u would be there instead
I always thought I could count on you
To protect me, to love me, to see me through
24 years & u had nothing to say
24 years & u just rode away
We built a family, we built a life
Thought I knew to be a good wife
Looked at those pictures & realized
U must have been slowly dying inside
Took four years to sleep in the middle of the bed
Four years to not think u would be there instead
I always thought I could count on you
To protect, to love, to see me through
Twenty five years & you had nothing to say
Twenty five years & you just rode away
We built a family, we built a life
Tried my best to be a good wife
Finding those pictures I realized
You must have been slowly dying inside
I think I had been for a long time too
Yet I tried to make it work with you
When the house was empty & I was alone
I'd think of the day I could be on my own
Think of how when we were young
I'd loved you so, the moon you hung
You were always my big strong man
Yet u left like only a coward can
Still time has passed & life rolls on
It seems a lifetime that you've been gone
I look at their faces & still see you
Faces you've chosen to not see through
All the rest I can let go
But abandoning your blood I'll never know
It must be ice running thru your veins
A cold, hard stone where no heart remains
On my knees each day I pray
That one day their pain will fade away
I see it in him much more than her
The anger, the fury, the sadness, the blur
She presses on, she's my hero you see
She is the angel I strive to be
I see him as that little boy
See him when his world was full of joy
I'm believing, I'm not relenting I'm never letting go
That his heart will heal & he
will know
Know His saviour won't let him go
