When The Darkness Called
You chose to go on and leave me behind.
I am lost and going out of my mind.
The children are crying, sobbing in grief,
Phone keeps on ringing, I get no relief.
It seems like a dream, a haunting nightmare,
A knife to my heart makes a sharp ragged tear.
I just want to scream and yell out my rage,
I feel like an animal, trapped in a cage.
We were partners, how could you do this to me.
Alone with my future uncertain to see.
Our children, motherless, cut adrift in life,
Just me and our kids, left without my dear wife.
I think of you often, in love and in pain,
Buried deep in my heart just trying to stay sane.
Keeping it together for our children's sake,
But each and every day my heart truly breaks.
I bid you farewell my dear loving wife.
We will go on in this thing called life.
Wishing you could have been strong for us all,
Responding instead when the darkness called.
