Divorce And Separation

It's a hard time separation
The time before divorce
It's hard on either party
Even harder when the cause
Is something there within you
That ate you from the start
You end up with accountants
When first you gave your heart.

A whole parcel of our lives is there
Long lost inside the mail
The feelings that we once had
When we thought we could not fail
To grow old and grey together
And be dreaming of the past.
Now these fondness dreams are over
And the time for sentiment has passed

I could not be the man you loved
Nor did you want to be
The one who helped my dreaming
And just let me be me.
