Divorce Poem

Inspired by the pain and betrayal of my wife of 15 years who is divorcing me. We have 8 year old twins. She had an affair when they were 2-4 yrs old, that I found out about 2 1/2 years ago. I sucked it up and stayed because I love my kids and forgave her as Christ forgives us. She's trying to clean me out financially and robbing me of precious time with my kids.

I wished it away,
I wished it away with might,
Futile I tried, no hope left in sight.

Dreams all dashed,
Family has crashed.

I wished it away,
There's not much left to say.

Oh, what we should have been,
Why Lord, did I lose my closest friend?

All our lives, never the same,
Who really should carry the blame?

No pill can erase,
The hurt upon my face.

Have faith the size of a mustard seed,
Even though my heart still bleeds.

How can this be by Your hand?
Guess I'll never understand.

Soldier on and be strong,
Why? When it feels so wrong.

They say, "This too shall pass,"
But no divorce is ever done with class.

Our children's tears and pain, still yet to come,
Oh, how I wish I could give you some.

I wished it away,
I wished it away with might.
Our family is now broken,
Because you turned out the light.

Wow. Your intro and your poem are almost identical to what I'm facing now. Wife's past adultery; Wife of 11 years left due to adultery (yet again)...have not seen my children in almost 7 months; her claim to Christianity. It's sad, but also refreshing to see that there are other men out there with similar circumstances.
