I do not have the answers
To the questions in my mind
I do not hold the key
That unlocks this heart of mine

I only have myself
The woman that I am
And though I make mistakes
I try the best I can

I do what I am asked
And walk that narrow line
I try to be real careful
And hide the hurt I find

I try not to let it bother
To keep it tucked away
But sometimes I am weary
And his words ruin my day

I am to weak to stop them
And so the tears do fall
I can not see the future
I only see a wall

I need a friend this evening
One to stop the pain
I need for them to comfort
And help me live again

I try to be devoted
And give him what he needs
He never can be happy
So maybe it is me

For I feel my life is over
The sadness is so thick
And as I pen this sentence
My soul is rather sick

I'm sorry I have bothered
You with this today
But perhaps my words will touch you
And you'll love your spouse a better way.
