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
