Can you forgive me for fighting in the war
I should have realized you've never been alone before

Can you forgive me for walking out the door
Two of your babies playing on the kitchen floor

Leaving you alone, so alone and insecure
All those strange men who came knocking at your bedroom door
You thought I'd never know about those men who held you so
I ran from my fear but I'm still hurt after all these years

Darling I've been told you weren't alone too long
And all the tears you shed where destined to be wrong
All those days I spent in hell making you wonder if I was well
I did my tour of duty

Tears on lonely nights in other arms that held you tight
Baby you know its only right that I'll be on my way
Writing every day from that battlefield so far away
Never knowing what to say, have you ever felt the trust pulled right out of your soul

You said you were sorry
It was all too much to bear
You said that you missed me
You cried on all the nights that I wasn't there

It's been such a long time since the mention of your name
Fills my heart with fear, heavy fear and heavy pain
I remember the day, you stopped living in my dreams
In a cold November way, but you never set me free

I still have the letter that tore our lives apart
It started out with love and ended up with broken hearts
Thirty years have passed, but darling I'm no longer mad
The man in Saigon, who shed those tears, never really came home

"Butch - your poetry continues to inspire us; thank you."
