maybe i could have loved you better

Maybe I could have loved you better, but I didn’t know how,
Even if i told you I am sorry, it is too late now.
I wish I could tell you that I never seen it coming, I never seen the signs,
Maybe I was in denial, maybe I was blind.
I wish I could have loved you, the way you needed me too,
Maybe if I could have, I would still have you.
I knew you was hurting, but I chose to do nothing, so I know the fault is mine,
I turned my back time after time.
I lied to myself so much in time I started to believe,
I just knew you would never leave.
It crushed my heart to watch you walk out the door,
I wish we could go back to the way it was before.
The kids ask when you are coming home; I tell them honestly I don’t know,
They went running after you begging you not to go.
I wanted you follow them and beg you too,
But I don’t know what good it would do.
But I know it is too late so I just walk away,
For not fixing our marriage sooner,
A broken home is the price I will for ever pay.
