The End

There he sits day after day
Empty his eyes, they look away
Marriage perhaps is just too long
What once felt right now feels wrong

When she's gone will he wonder why
behind the scenes might he even cry
or will he celebrate her letting go
Maybe yes, but she will never know

Distant is he from dusk to dawn
She finds no reason to carry on
He does not treat her as he should
she is not made of rock or wood

His words are fewer everyday
he turns his back and walks away
What a shame to say goodbye
So many years - should not she cry

The love between them is no more
being together has become a chore
He just wanted someone to claim
she was naive - what a shame

So like a king upon his throne
he will continue all alone
She forgives him, it's OK
She will survive another day

Her love for him was one of a kind
another like hers he will not find
So here is where she says goodbye
Gone with all her reasons why
