Out Of My Life

I burnt the wedding photos
I could look at them no more
anything that belonged to him
was put out the door

I got rid of all the records
that reminded me of him
all his books and magazines
were put in the bin

I stripped the bedroom paper
because I hated sleeping there
it did look pretty awful
but I’d rather have it bare

Divorce it was quite painful
so final it was sad
I felt sorry for my children
growing up without a dad

I had to get him out of my hair
so I could carry on
the only way to do this
was to make sure that he had gone

We learnt to live without him
we were three instead of four
but there is peace in knowing
they won’t suffer any more
