I wrote this poem about my ex-wife and myself, how I traveled to Scotland to bring her and her daughters home with me, and prior to that the care packages, and love and worries I was sending her daily in the mail and, money and worries I was sending and receiving from our government to get them home to me. I finally when I got them home to me, my wife who I fought for, went in debt for, wept for, she committed adultery on me.
I have traveled over a thousand miles
I have been greeted by both hugs and smiles
I have traveled over oceans and lands
Just to reach my destination and to hold her hands,
I have been by myself and all alone
I have cried to myself and I did moan
Many afflictions to me did occur
But I did it for me, but mostly for her,
I have been pushed against the wall and I fought
I would win the battle that I had sought
To any situation I believed I will never accept no
So I fought that much longer and forward I did go,
I have worked my fingers down to the bone
I earned what I had and nearly lost what I did own
But from all of these factors I did not deter
As I did it for me, but mostly for her,
I have fought for love, but then sadly I lost
My pain and my sadness was the ultimate cost
I journeyed for love, but that idea went bust
While I was looking for love, she was seeking lust
I have given all I had I had nothing more to give
Except for the air that I breath and the life that I live
I wanted us to be one, but then I thought that we were
As I did it for me, but I did it mostly for her.
