When You Said Goodbye 

And that when I started to cry

When you said goodbye

When you took your love

And gave it

To someone else


I started to cry

When I remembered the home

We built together,

And our lovely kids

I started to cry

When you ignored your children

And pretended they

Did not exist


But I stopped crying

When I remembered

The goodness of God

And his mercy

He became

The father of my children

And I never lacked

He wiped away my tears

And brought David

Who loved me

And grew old with me

And I never remembered

You or your betrayal

Ever again
