Learning My Lesson


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2010 with permission of the Author.

I gave you a chance, let you in and tried to be your friend.
I should have known, you wouldn't be there in the end.

I wanted you to love me, I waited for so very long.
I didn't want to feel the hurt, but you still did me wrong.

I always had hope, I never wanted it this way.
No matter how hard I tried, you always pushed me away.

I should have known you never really cared.
You let us leave, you were never even scared.

We never turned back, your own brother helped us board.
Never caring what was ahead, through it all we sure soared.

There were times, whether good or bad,
When I was a little girl, I should of had my dad.

You weren't there when I was young, you never got to see.
You don't have a clue, you don't even know me.

Every single birthday, they all went by,
You never saw those candles go out, never my dad by my side.

But you should know, I had someone there,
He's special to me, and his name is Ger.

But not even he can take away all these years of pain.
Through all of this hurt, there is still a lot to gain.

Without even knowing, you taught me good lessons for life.
I will do what I can because my husband deserves a good wife.

I will stick by his side, never let things go bad.
Because I have chosen a man who will always be a good dad.

You have made me wise, much more than my years.
All this hurt and pain, I have learned a lot through the tears.

I have been so mature, much more than even you.
What can I say, I guess you didn't know what to do.

You think I don't know, maybe it's I didn't want to,
But me being younger, I will always be more mature than you.

I stand up for myself, believe in what I say,
And always know, I treat people the right way.

There is no more to say, nothing more I can do.
Any chance of a relationship for us is now and forever through.

You threw that away, many years ago with the lies,
Funny thing though, the truth, you must know, it never dies.
