I see the anger reflected in your face,
undefined as our love was at one time
when everything we did appeared fine
before the love and care was replaced.
Was it love what for years we carried?
Everything we understood was unclear
and when silence took hold it did appear
we drifted apart as we stayed married.
One day my living turned to desperation,
I felt trapped and lost without the notion
that anger replaced your lost emotions
and everything else became frustration.
When did we lose what it was promised?
We never thought that our lives would end
with picking out pieces and time misspent
in making out words without being honest.
Walking away I did with much hesitation,
freedom always comes with a price to pay
and all the years together I cannot erase
as I drift more apart in our separation.
Now it’s time to unbind a broken vow,
to separate lives that never meant to be,
never meant to tie what was given free
but messed up in the process somehow.
Maybe one day I’ll regard you dearly
when I see a smile I remember clearly,
maybe one day when we are far away
I’ll remember why I could never stay.
