songs stolen

i used to love to sing
there used to be days that could not pass
without a sung word that passed through my lips

but you took away my voice when i needed it most
stole the joy right out of my singing
now the days of carefreeness are long past

yes, i remark like an old woman who has lost her youth
i used to have a beautiful voice
but i don’tΒ sing anymore

-when you joked that you liked yelling at your children
