 Poetry Through My Eyes and My World

A Family Affair

We thought our marriage would last
After 23 years
It's now something in the past
We would have our ups & downs
But it was nothing we couldn't work out
As time lingered
Our trust was something we often fought about
We could no longer communicate
And strengthen what we once had
We had 3 children
And no matter what may become of us
It doesn't change the fact
That I am their mother & you their Dad
We have fought many times
And brought our children into our business
It's been plenty of times
The arguments our children did witness
So many tears have been shed
Because we simply could no get along
Our children had to see us hurt
And in return we hurt them
And made them feel as if they did not belong
Other people were brought into our private lives
Causing us to have more turmoil
Anger & hatred grew within our hearts
Beginning it to boil
Going our own separate way was something
Long over due
Too much had been said & done
To have made our marriage what it once was
Our marriage would always have something
That will keep us bonded for life
We should only hope that our children
Can understand & forgive us
For not being able to be husband & wife
But out long lasting marriage
Was something that simply could not be
