Sunday by the bay

White lace brushed across my face

Words I wish left unsaid

Too many not so happy tears shed

Buttons and flowers

Egos as tall as the highest towers

Curses made and promises broken

Love that was left unspoken

Bands of rose gold

Little hands I no longer get to hold

Smiles stolen that should have been mine

Ripped away with the words "that's fine"

Days passed and memory starts to blur

But knowing what I do I wouldn't go back to the way things were

You ask for money, for help, for everything from me

But when I ask for you just to see

You let me down

And my anger was sound

One day was all I wanted

But now I am forever haunted

Tainted and wasted

Manipulated and isolated

Space requested

And feelings left devastated

Maybe one day we can be friends again

Since me being in your family is just a ball and chain

You can try and delete me from your life

But I will always remember the big brother that gave me a pocket knife

You can hold people hostage, that's out of my control

But trust me when I say it's going to do more damage to her soul

I am still looking for the silver lining

I pray for the sun to start shining

I will forgive but I will not forget

And you will never scare me with your threat

Sunday by the bay

I just wish you would have wanted to stay
