Carey York

(11-27-1980 / Terrell Tx.)

I Am Free


You chose her over me,
You set yourself free,
You wouldn't let go of that stronghold,
And I wasn't about to fold.

I am your wife,
And for many years I have been in your life,
But as soon as she walked in our door,
I became the dirt that lies on the floor.

You moved out,
And took her without a doubt,
But I still have my boys,
And they give me much joy.

I hope you find what it is you are looking for,
For me, you opened a new door,
From the pain you had caused me,
I am free.
