I'll Go On Alone

I thought it would be forever
the day I became your wife;
I've given you two sons
and the best years of my life.

How hard I tried to forget,
loving you more than I can say;
But your spending time with others
destroyed me a little each day.

I can't live this way anymore,
waiting until it happens again.
My love for you is not enough,
no matter how hard I pretend.

I've built a wall around me
to protect me from the pain.
I don't know who I am anymore,
my life will never be the same.

I've been afraid to go on alone
but what have I to gain?
Only to spend more years of my life
enduring more hurt and pain?

Circumstances have changed
the woman I used to be.
I have to go on alone now;
for myself and my sanity.
