I said I love you
You said I love you too,
But wait …
You said you want me to be your wife;
Be your life …
But wait …
We spoke of a future
So together we could grow old;
You said you wanted me
And wanted to spend your life with me …
At least that’s the story you told.
I exposed you to my kids and did family
Things; shared their birthdays, Christmas
And took family pictures, I did everything for
You as a wife would … only you weren’t mine
To do all these things with, you were obligated to
Someone else, it was never to me … let me go now,
I need to be free.
You know you weren’t with her when you and I met,
We had our life planned out, had our life set.
To be together over a year then she comes back into
The picture, this hurts … and I asked you to go,
To have you back and forth from my bed to hers, you said it isn’t so
You say she is just there since you share a child … that is okay but why
Not a divorce? Why haven’t you filed? You say she doesn’t love you
And you don’t love her, if this is so, why are you still together and I am alone?
Why do you stay there with her and I am in this empty home?
Remember the nights I spent all alone?
Whether it was sitting by the phone or
Glaring out the window, all I did was wait.
Six years is a long time to ask me to wait,
Now you tell me again to be with you,
To be with you and to be a part of your life
I have to continue to wait on the decision
Of your wife.
