About the Poem

After many years of marriage, the leaving of my husband is very painful.

Survival

Sometimes I feel so all alone here.
I cannot help but shed many tears.
My whole life, I've worked for my family.
Now all I have, it seems, is pain and agony.

They say someday it will get better,
But all I want for now is a love letter.
I've loved unselfishly my husband all these years,
Now all I want is for Him to love me and call me Dear.

I guess he's decided to go his separate way,
And all I want is to survive...

...another day.

I have spent the last 15 years, 2 kids and a thousand smiles and tears with a man who could never quite keep it together. Now that he has a grip on his life he has decided maybe we should no longer try! It is a pain indescribable yet somehow you have magically put words to this heartache.
