Missing You Poem

Poem By A Mother Who Lost Parental Rights To Her Daughter

Me, a mother who lost my parental rights in 2005 to my daughter, cause my meth addiction was stronger than I was and let it take control. In my mind I completely, deeply believed that her and I would always be together. She is my daughter, through and through, God gave her to me, no one can take that away. She belong right by my side where God intended her to be. So I thought. Till one day she was gone, I screamed at God 'this hurts to hard!', today I feel a loss so deep and it never goes away.

I just can't believe you're gone,
Still waiting for morning to come
Wanna see if the sun will rise
Even without you by my side.
We had so much in store,
I'll hold yesterday in my heart.

They took all our tomorrows
And the plans we made.
They took all the music
That we'll never play.
All the broken dreams, take everything.
But they can never have yesterday.

They took the future away
That we'll never know.
They took the places away
That I said we would go.
All the broken dreams, take everything.
But they can never have yesterday.

People always said I should be thankful for everyday,
Heaven knows what the future holds
Or at least how the story goes...
But I never believed I'd be living my days without you.

I know I'll see you again I'm sure.
Is it selfish of me to ask for more?
Since I am the reason you're gone?
One more day, one more night,
One more smile on your face,
But they can't take yesterday.

I thought our days would last forever,
'Cause in my mind we had so much time,
But I was so wrong.
Now I try to believe that I can still find
The strength in the moments we made
To make it one more day,
I'm looking back on yesterday.

All the broken dreams take everything,
But they can never have yesterday.

I am an orphan now. My mom's parental rights were taken on October 2, 2017. When they were taken, I thought my life would end, that I had nothing to live for. It was very upsetting, and when my mom's rights were taken she just walked out and never said bye. The person who said she would be there for me had just walked out as if I'm a stranger now, and I am still in a group home. I don't like talking to people about it because when I do, it's like reliving the past, and the past is what's hurtful. I'm hoping to be adopted. I'm 14 years old, and not many people want to adopt a 14 year old boy. I am living a never-ending horror film.

I lost my daughter in 2007. I have never been the same since she was only with me for 3 weeks and 1 day I have lost all my feeling because they will never be the same again ever. Everyday I wake up trying to keep people happy but I will never ever have my self again. I have two boys and they are the only reason now I am going today. My friends and family are always here for me but only for so many days I thought that your family is always by your side but when things happen that's when you know who your real family are I have been hurt with everything you can image I just don't know why God does these things.
