That's Not The Way Love Should Be - Poem by JAMES T. ADAIR

You are so much older than your years
on account of all your lonely tears
all the time so hard you tried
drowing in sorrow and tears you cried

The tears you cried in vain
No man understood or felt your pain
but you moved forward as you could
and did everything a lover should

But then he struck you down again
Hit you like thunder or a freight train
and then inside it began to rain
and all you love poured down the drain

You tried to love and still swear you do
But it only tears you up again inside
And after you cower and hide
you're lost in a void of black and blue

Tender kisses try to reconcile
But they feel false all the while
as you try to find your smile
Your heart twists and turns on trial

Your children pretend they don't know
You hurt inside and try not to show
But they know mommy has tears
As they try to console mommy's fears

And somewhere across the world
A simple man feels your sorrow
and prays for your happiness tomorrow
His care you may borrow

Because he feels inside a woman true
Knows there aren't many left like you
and he know this surely as the sunrise
Becasue he's lived through heartbreak too

You may turn to him for shelter
when life feels torn and helter-skelter
and you may cry tears into his open hand
He'll comfort you and will understand

If you wish for someone on whom to depend
To you a piece of his heart he'll gladly send
Because a heart as yours, so kind snd hopeful
Deserves the care and comfort of a friend

As time goes on he might need one too
with the heart to care and to stick to him like glue
And feel needed when his spirit is lost or blue
Maybe someone a little bit like you

If you read this and words ring true
and your tears fall out of the blue
Someone understands what you've been through
Because this poem I wrote for you
