If I Ever

 

If I ever see you again,
be sure that I'll have something to say,
I'm going to tell you how you hurt me,
I'm going to tell you every which way,
of the things that still affect me today.

If I ever see you again,
be sure I'll have a question to ask,
it's been years I've been wondering why,
and I still see the pain in our sons' eyes,
I was there when the blue eyes cried,
we were both decieved by your lies.

If I ever see you again,
I'll know of your change,
I know how you wear yourself,
I know of your buried rage,
I'll know if you've turned the page.

If I ever see you again,
be sure I'll let you know,
I'm still picking pieces up,
cutting myself on edges that remain rough.

If I ever see you again,
you'll see the bruises you left are long gone,
in their place,
the strength,
the confidence I had all along.

If I ever see you again,
you'll know I've severed your string
from my heart,
and that I sold the ring,
and that my heart is free to love again,
and to sing.
