My Nightlife

Sitting alone deep in the night
No moon or stars even in sight
Suddenly my throat is tight
Choke back the tears contrite
How did I get this way?
What would my Daddy say?
How could they take my kids away?
All we used to do was play
Gave to them all I could
Gifts when they were good
Corrected them when I should
My heart is like a hunk of wood
Someone’s jealous vengeful lie
Sometimes I wish I’d die
Every night I cry and cry
Why must I say goodbye?
All the time I pray and pray
Does God care what I say?
On my knees til break of day
Please put it back to the old way
