Until We Meet Again

"Until We Meet Again"

All we have in this life Sometimes is our children and our friends,
It gets so hard out here right now in this life,we need family too,
You work so hard to pay every day,it's easy to see who is real and who pretends,
Because words do hurt,they don't bounce off me and stick to you,
It takes more than you ever thought you could give,stressed to the max,
Everything taken from you, even when she knew it was my only reason left to live,
You have no idea, but the truth hurts too bad,I now know all the facts,
I tried my best for her,she took it all,I got nothing left to give,
I know what I thought it was, thought both felt it,wrong,but for me it was love,
We created our children together, not by myself,it takes two people for that dance,
It did not matter then,guess I was the only one felt it was a blessing up above,
You said you knew you loved me, just took that one glance,
Sometimes I don't even know what we were arguing about,
It does not matter which one of us was wrong or which one was right,
All you seemed to do towards the end, was scream at everyone and shout,
The love we had for each other,was one sided,my love for you was out of sight,
No matter what you did to me,I opened my heart again, and allowed you to come back,
She calls me "Daddy" now, I stepped up, definitely not him,
She still needs me as her father,he is a dead beat,his way of thinking is wack,
You know this already,just can't believe you cheated with brothers Grimm,
Anyway, guess I can always say you were just a friend,
Even though, you know if you ever need me you just say when,
Have a nice life, and take care my kid's my Love,a part will always love you, "Until We Meet Again".
