When We Think

Published: May 2008

When we sit and we think
about our childhood and what you did
We wonder why you did those things

You made us cry and you didn't care
you said you were sorry but you were never there
Mom, I love you and I want you to know you made me brave
and I thank you for that

If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be so strong
My sister and I are the strongest girls I know
we have been through so much, you wouldn't even know

I hope you are happy
I love you though

Love always,
Your Daughter

She always put men and drugs before me and now she wants to be in mine and my son's life. I am finally happy and I don't have a place for her right now. I'm not sure I ever will
