My Baby

Published: February 2006

You're my baby
Never maybe
I'm your Wifey
Never might be
And even though you're so far away, just want to let you know I'll be here to stay
You're in jail
Can't pay your bail
Your innocence claim failed
Your daughter's missin' you, and her mommy is too
Questions like where's daddy makes me want to cry
I hold her hand, we try to get by
I can't just tell her daddy deals drugs
So I just smile at her and give her a hug
I wipe a tear and start thinking about you
Life is so hard living without you
Still I'm there every Monday and Sunday
Wishing you can just up and runaway
4 more years with you behind bars
Damn, I sigh, why does life have to be so hard?

This poem really hits the spot of my relationship. My fiancé is in jail and has been there for a year. We had a baby in December of 2012 and he also passed away in 2012. My fiancé was devastated and didn't know how to react to his grief. He committed a crime that he could be in Prison for 20+ years and I don't know what I would do if he was in there that long because I wouldn't be able to wait on him. He is my everything and I don't want to loose the last of my little family because Aidyn was our first son and loosing him was hard enough and now I am on the verge of loosing him too. I can only hope and pray that everything will turn out the way we planned.
