Wife of an Addict

It feels as though an empty hole
has traded places with my soul
And though some offer helping hands
There is no one who understands

Well, there is one - just one - who knows
And feels the lowest of my lows
And He knows why I feel this way
I guess I will know too, someday

And maybe then, I'll be so strong
That I'll help others get along
this thorny path I now am treading
Which younger girls are only dreading

Or even may be unaware
of how this problem's everywhere
And so they'll be as unprepared
as I was, that first day he shared
