Dear Mom

Dear Mom,
You said you'd always be there

But you're nowhere to be found
I can't believe you left me

I feel so low beneath the ground
There's nothing I can do now

I trusted you with all my heart
But now you're gone

You're the one who tore my life apart
I've learned not to trust

There's nothing more to say
You've lost someone special

You can't get back each day
Now you're the one left in the dark

And all of a sudden you feel my pain
You expect me to take you back

But you still feel you're not to blame
I could never forgive you

Even if I tried
You can never make up

For the lonely nights I've cried
You will never know the feeling

Of losing the person you need the most
To laugh and cry and love you

Instead of making you feel like a ghost
I've moved on with my life

Without you by my side
My pain has kept so long

I'm telling you how I feel inside
In a way I want to thank you

Because of you I'm strong
I just wanted you to know

I didn't turn out wrong

Love for my Daughter

Pregnancy
Shock, excitement, nerves and wonder
Sleeplessness ensues, my mind wanders...

Opportunity to mold a life so precious, a great responsibility, can I be a success?

Will I be a good mother, someone I am proud to be?
Will I show her the complete, unselfish love that every baby needs?

Giving birth, a TRUE labor of love
My baby is born, a daughter now here
A love is also born, so consuming and near

Almost suffocating, an overwhelming feeling surrounds me
Tears fill my eyes, I hold her so tightly

My love for my daughter, so grand and great
I succumb to my fear, my daughter can't wait

Dad


All those times I cried for you, you never came
Out of all the sports I played

You never showed up at one game
All of the awards I received

I never heard you clap
You were never there

For me to sit on your lap
All the times I fell

and scratched my knee
You were the one who wasn't there

To comfort me
All those times I was bored

And wanted someone to call
You still weren't there

Not there at all
I always tried to make you proud

Hoping you would love me more
but you never seemed to care

So what did I even do it for
You weren't there for any of my firsts

Might not be for any of my lasts
It's like you're not here in my present

Just like you weren't there in my past
I try to move on

But no one knows how hard it is
For your own father not to love you

As much as he loves his other kids
But I hold my head high

To keep things from looking so bad
But deep down I still wish

I had love from my dad
