I tried to be the best wife I could but it wasn't enough for you determined to anger me, make me sad Forever being blue. Deliberately you goaded me till I cried starting arguments to make me give in the mental torture cut deep inside Gnawing at me from within. Thirty five years of marriage I gave you chucked away like a used handkerchief no counselling or help to decide our fate Just YOU get justice and relief. You traded me in for someone else never taking my feelings into account worked hard all our marriage for you and the kids No matter how hard or the amount. So go have your life, be with that girl leave me alone to survive don't worry about me be happy yourself I'll be fine on my own, I'm alive! Struggling to live, scared on my own, but I'm strong and will survive. A man you loved for forty years Has gone, life is not fair. Kids all gone, lives of their own My mind is going spare. Not going out, no friends to see Living this life day by day. It's hard to forget so many years In a nightmarish foray. So its questionable why this happened to me In a previous life was I bad? Months have passed, things moving on Day by day not so sad. Going shopping. Eating out In my new role as single not a wife! Happy now on my own, I reflect then when It nearly ended by taking my life but time is a great healer so they say Especially for an abandoned wife.
