NOT SO LONG AGO

As we leave the station the countryside flows fast
People push and shove don't get a seat if you are last,
My two daughters are loving it we're of to the sea and sand
I look out of the window then begin to doze of into another land

I think back to a time not so long ago when we were four
Happy and carefree in life but not so, any longer, anymore,
It takes time to get used to it I feel the pain for the children
They often have a weep at night, they must find it bewildering.

I loved their mother so much, I was always loving and kind
I will never understand it myself, it will never leave my mind,
Iwas never a courageous man but I'm neither a coward
I could have thumped him on the nose but over me he towered.

It breaks my heart to even think about it as I hear the children play
There's no logic to what she did, I suppose they might forgive her one day,
I still love her, perhaps I could have tried more for the children's sake
I have never hurt anyone in my life but I'm hurting now make no mistake.

The children are my world, we have loads of fun each day
I pick them up from school and they have loads to tell and say
But the part that makes me happy and oh so very sad
Is when I kiss them both goodnight and they hug me
And say we love you so very much dad.
