Many nights I stand at the bed,
Waiting for you to come home,
Sadly I lay in sleeplessness,
Another night spent all alone.
Where did our love go,
The eagerness to share,
A quickened heart beat,
Just by me being there.
Racing along to greet me,
Holding me as though I was life,
Now you turn and walk away,
Torment is now running rife.
I long for you as much as ever,
Yearn to hold you in my arms,
You have replaced me with another,
Seduced by your polished charms.
The nights seem so endless,
My heart is broken evermore,
My presence now is rejected,
My love you openly deplore.
I feel as though I am ripped apart,
Nothing can bring calm to these fears,
My life has been tragically shattered,
Leaving me with fresh flowing tears.
Marriage was to be cherished,
Joined in blessed love forever,
Instead It was a resting place,
As you planned your next endeavor.
I wish you well through my heartache,
I pray you find happiness in time,
I cry tears for what could have been,
A sweet dream of love sublime.
