My heart longs for you today
Thinking of our love affair back in the day
Still amazed how quickly things went awry;
You were my friend, husband, and brother
Me, your soul-mate, wife, and sister
Never thought you’d ever leave me.

Though I have your child as a consolation,
Every day I still live with the hurt
That you could turn me into a lonely-heart;
Daily our love life I painfully re-live in tears
Life, I don’t think I should live alone
Forever, I’d thought you’d be my own.

You were the sweetest friend I’ve ever known
Every other man you gracefully outshone
Never knew you’d leave me high-and-dry;
Your absence I daily bemoan
To your child, you’re unknown
Yet you’re supposed to be his best ally.

Late at night when I can’t sleep
I painfully revel in wishful thinking
Imagining you’re here with me;
I wake up in the morning feeling hollow
And I ask myself: where’s my hero
With a sick fearful feeling in my belly,

I know it’s time to face another day alone
Without the man who’s supposed to be my backbone.
