From the start I catered for your every whim,
Stroked your hair while you dreamt of him.
Every night I stared at your face as you slept,
Laid your head on my chest as I silently wept.
All my ambitions in life revolved around you,
Plans laid out, heart laid bare for a fantasy only you knew.
Yesterday you showed me a little blue line,
For twenty-four hours I was on cloud nine.
A fresh start, new hope and a baby boy or a girl,
New love and a future for our family to unfurl.
Today after work I came home to an empty house,
Flowers and a ring to seek your hand as my spouse.
My heart sank as I staggered from room to room,
The building I called home had become my tomb.
A note on the table sealed my fate with a kiss,
Our past, present and future thrown to the abyss.
The life we shared, the life you grow, all a lie,
Both belong to another and the letter was your goodbye.
All the times I kept quiet and kept him out of mind and out of sight,
Now I'm alone and out of my mind because I didn't put up a fight.
You always said I was too weak and should grow a set of balls,
I always wished you'd see the times I picked myself up after all of my falls.
If you read my words know that I wish you and baby well,
I'm already dead, it's time for me to leave this broken shell.
