How peaceful walking upon that lonely hill
could hear distant voices singing
looking down at the countryside so still
dawn breaks dreading her phone ringing
false lighting replaced by natural light
as the future had to have a rewrite.
Thoughts of work his families need
oh how much he really did care
straining eyes just trying to see
the old house where family dwell
home where he also use to be
praying all the children are well.
Divorce often hard for children to bear
their loyalties can be torn both ways
wanted to show them he did care
only able to see them for two days.
Not an easy time facing separation
surely children the ones who suffer
feeling guilty he had let them down
not seeing them during the week
another man was living there now
must maintain his link somehow!
