A Pleading Cry by Gary R. Ferris
I know your eyes are looking ,

For things far down the road;

It looks so bright and glorious,

But things aren’t like they’re told.
You say you’ve found what you wanted,

Your life lies up ahead;

You see him in your future,

And dream of him in bed.
You want to give up on us,

And toss your past away;

Our child we share together,

Was just promised yesterday.
How can you just forget us,

For our love we’ve always shown;

Your eyes are blind with darkness,

And your heart has waxed so cold.

I know that things weren’t always perfect,

But life my dear never is;

But someone comes along to steal,

And says your life is his.
I don’t have much to offer you,

But love as pure as snow;

If only I could find a way,

To make you not want to go.
I’ve survived a lot so far,

And can hurt a little while;

But it will be hard to go on living,

If I have to miss your smile.
So please don’t leave me darling,

And turn and walk away;

Let’s not worry about tomorrow,

Just give me your today.
