She Wanted To Go
Why would someone say that they love you if they don’t mean it?
Why do you bring my child in this world if you didn’t feel it?
How can you sleep with me at nights and yet you hate me?
Why have you come in my life if not for love, then to destroy me?
How could you do this? think about your child.
She is so innocent in all this, so gentle and mild.
What have I done to you to make you become this way?
Why do you shout you hate me each and every day?
But what am I doing to myself, maybe it’s time to let go?
Maybe I cling to a dream of the past, where we were a family and our lives glowed
What about my sweet little Mary, she hears the arguments and cries in her bed clutching her teddy?
I don’t want her to be traumatized by adult scuffles already
So now you tell me, you found someone new.
so I guess he was the one that bought you those five hundred dollar shoes?
My lady, many times the grass is greener on the other side because the grass is fake
Think about your family for goodness sake
What are you doing, are you packing to leave
Please think about this carefully, think about Mary upstairs asleep
So you have made up your mind, so there is nothing more to say
please tell me what can I do to convince you to stay?
Wait, who is that honking outside the door
Please don’t tell me he came to my house before
So what about your daughter, aren’t you going to say something to her
No, don’t bother, I could not stand to see her hurt
When we met, you were such a marvelous and humble being
Now all that glitters is all that matters to you it seems
Yes, I am but a humble Janitor who has taken care of my family for ten years
My hands are swollen, my back aches, I have been disrespected, so much pain, so much tears
But don’t worry about Mary, she will be greater than her dad ever was
I will see her through College, I will grow her with care and love
Goodbye now, I hope your new life treats you well
Karma has a way of making a 360 degree turn, sometimes it turns you for the better, sometimes the route goes straight to hell.
