he left on a monday

i’ll tell you a story

it’s sad

it’s true

he packed up his car

he left me

he left you

how he could do it

many have guessed

i have no idea

i’ve tried my best

our little ones there

all around

at my feet

goodbye Daddy they said

with tears on their cheeks

a short little trip

turned into a year

an empty bed waited

for his return

to us here

but alas

here we sit

just me and the kids

he never came back

he ran away

he just hid

he left on a monday

i’ll never forget


i’ll always wonder

what went on

in his head.
