Today I said something and was really bad.
I said it to my wife, now my children are sad.

Why did I say it, it was not in my heart?
When I looked in her eyes, she was torn apart.

For my wife and my children, I have to do better,
as I sit here and read this heartbreaking letter.

I did not know I was causing all of them such pain.
When a man loves his family, it is nothing but shame.

Now she is telling me about all the past hurts.
It is tearing me apart. My emotions will burst!
