I left my wife and kids today.
They could not make me stay.
I didn't like the way we lived...
What they said...
What they did.

I was abandoned by my husband today.
I would have done anything to make him stay.
I tried to make him happy.
Apart of me is dying.
I'm trying to keep from crying.
(for my kid's sake)

I saw my Dad walk away today.
No one knows when he will come back to stay.
What did we do to make him go away?
I thought we were a family.
Its all so confusing...
I think my heart is bruising.
