His plans and dreams are unfulfilled,
he says I'm not what he needs.
He feels the need to be on his way
and I vow I'll not beg or plead.
He said he'll give 'us' one more try
and acts like things are fine
But I know down deep within my heart
he's only marking time.
He has to know that I'm aware
he doesn't plan to stay
Action speak louder than words
so he doesn't have to say
I try not to let him see the tears,
the pain and the despair.
I try to stay upbeat and cheerful
and act like he still cares.
I show him love and affection,
and steal kisses when I can.
But sometimes his cool demeanor
is more than I can stand.
I listen to his comments closely
looking for any sign or clue
For I want to be prepared the day
he finally says we're through
Until that day, I'll try not to dwell
on all my pain and fears
I'll show him all the love and support
and he'll not see any tears.
I hope one day he'll look back
with warm thoughts and a smile,
for the total and unconditional love
that I gave him for a while.
