I look across the horizon,
My thoughts turn to you,
Of The love we had together,
And the happiness it grew.

After all the years of marriage,
Precious children made complete,
Until a wanderlust grew inside,
The kids and I could not compete.

You are still in my mind,
Not a day that I don't see,
Reflections in our little girl,
Causes your face to haunt me.

You found happiness with another,
Yet now that has fallen apart,
But it serves not to lessen,
The hurt so deep in my heart.

Our children are growing up,
Without the presence of a mother,
Family is always there to help,
But they need the arms of another.

Tear streaked faces and questions,
I can't tell them the truth of you,
It would only serve to hurt them,
And the anguish to start anew.

You are still in my mind,
As night falls and I retreat to bed,
I lay in such loneliness,
The darkness I truly dread.

I lay alone in the darkness,
Asking over and over why,
How could you just walk away,
Ignoring your family's cry.

I thank God I knew love once,
I vowed to forever love you,
How I wish I could face tomorrow,
And bid this sadness adieu.
