A Hopeless Dream

You're leaving
I'm dying

If I can't stop this from happening
I can't wake from this nightmare
Will doing things I know to be right
Change your mind and get you to care

Will running away
Make this easier for me
Will sticking around
Make things harder
Than they have to be

I wish I had the right answers
To make my dreams come true
It's not being a part time friend
It includes me
being with all
of you

You could feel the heart of the writer as he pours his soul into verse... well penned
at the beginning of this i thought it was about broken love... then it turned into being a father. from what i can gather (which may be very wrong) is you have a child you wish you could spend more time with, and have the family that comes with having this kid. i hope it all works out for you... 'will running away make it easier for me will sticking around make things harder than they have to be' i loved those lines most. running away never solves the problem at hand, it just seems to bandaide the situation... is will always be there... but you have to do what you feel in your heart and think in your head... good luck.
