Mother Child Poem

I suffered from addiction and let my children down but now its my time to shine with my children by my side.


I can't count the times I have let you down,
I can't count the tears of the fears,
Of knowing I wouldn't always be around.
The addiction I carry I couldn't hide within,
Until the day they took you and my life became a stray.
I want you to know that even though things are crazy now,
Love in my heart to you will exceed from high above.
I know now how I lost you and no more suffer,
I no more hide and run away from the tears and fears,
For you I will always hold,
Forever close by because you are my little Andres.
The choices I have made haven't been the best but one thing knowing,
is that you are the love of my life.
