-1When I Call Your Name
I never realized how unhappy Renee was until the one thing happened that completely broke my heart into a million pieces.
I knew we had been fighting and arguing more often than usual but I didn't think too much of it until I came home from work one day and found my whole life had changed.
I rushed home from work like I always do
I spent my whole day just thinking of you
When I walked through the front door my whole like was changed
Cause nobody answered when I called your name
I loved Renee and our daughter beyond reason and now they were gone. I found the note she left me on the table.
A note on the table that told me goodbye
It said you'd grown weary of living a lie
Your love has ended but mine still remains
But nobody answers when I call your name
I knew it was useless but I called out her name anyway. I had never felt more lonely than I did in that moment when all that came back to me was silence and the echo of my own voice.
I was never a man to show much emotion but I couldn't help but fall down on my knees and cry. I wanted my family back but I knew that wasn't going to happen. The note said she'd grown weary of living a lie. I gathered from that Renee had stopped loving me a long while back. Now she had come to realize she couldn't do it anymore.
Oh the lonely sound of my voice calling
Is driving me insane
And just like rain the tears keep falling
Nobody answers when I call your name
For days, I shut myself off from the world. I laid in bed or on the couch and stared at the walls. I woke myself up at night calling her name. I tried not to cry anymore but I just couldn't stop the tears from falling when nobody answered when I called her name.
After a few days, I pulled myself together and went back to my life though it was not the same and never would be again. I knew I would always love Renee because she was my first true love.
