GOING AWAY

i’ve loved you and cared for you
every day of your life
i’ve paid a ransom price
to be your mother
a parent, a wife
in the roll of life’s dice
you’ll never know the depth
of my sacrifice
 
no time for small talk?
nor the details of my day?
so self-important now
you weren’t raised this way
and you tell me how you don’t care
it’s there in your eyes in that blank stare
 
good luck you’ve had your say
i won’t abide your disrespect
goodbye for now, i’m walking away
i don’t need you
i’m not some old door mat
my heart and i
can’t look back
 
i’m walkin’ away
my bags are packed
i loved you with all my heart
now i can’t look back
the fuse is burning in your life now
ticking like a time bomb
and you’ll never know how
i gave everything to be your Mom
 
i gave it all to be your Mom
a mother scorned by her own child
the most painful crime of all
you’ll realize sometime
when your heart’s in free-fall
when your friends are few
and she leaves you
and the bills come due
 
remember that i loved you
you’ll remember things i say
but i won’t abide your disrespect
goodbye for now
i’m walking away
 
i don’t need you
i’m not some old door mat
you broke my heart
and i can’t look back
i’m walkin’ away
my bags are packed
i loved you with all of my heart
and i can’t look back
let me know when you’re back on track
