I drown every day

this river of tears will never end

it springs from my door everyday

when the one i love leaves

it is a torrent when he returns at night

and says that no one hired him today

it rushes into my day leaving me tossed

and wrung out with the fury of worry it brings

it batters at my soul as i watch the one i love

struggle everyday to get up and face the world again

to feel the wet on my face

the grinding of weariness as he leaves again and again

returning again and agin with no work

it ends in the ocean of salty tears that i have cried watching

a good man get beaten everyday

the cycle never ends

every day is a new river and every night a new ocean
