O, Why'd you Leave

Was it something I said inadvertently Did my eyes reveal uncertainty O, why'd you leave Was my rapt listening inattentive Or passion's kisses uninventive O, how I grieve Alcohol, not once did I abuse Or narcotics ever use O, the sighs I've heaved To the kids, I was devoted On your mother, I always doted O, please believe... That now I'll never be the same That I'll forever myself blame ~ To your memory, I will cleave
