Dear Mom

Dear Mom,
You said you'd always be there

But you're nowhere to be found
I can't believe you left me

I feel so low beneath the ground
There's nothing I can do now

I trusted you with all my heart
But now you're gone

You're the one who tore my life apart
I've learned not to trust

There's nothing more to say
You've lost someone special

You can't get back each day
Now you're the one left in the dark

And all of a sudden you feel my pain
You expect me to take you back

But you still feel you're not to blame
I could never forgive you

Even if I tried
You can never make up

For the lonely nights I've cried
You will never know the feeling

Of losing the person you need the most
To laugh and cry and love you

Instead of making you feel like a ghost
I've moved on with my life

Without you by my side
My pain has kept so long

I'm telling you how I feel inside
In a way I want to thank you

Because of you I'm strong
I just wanted you to know

I didn't turn out wrong

Sometimes the thoughts in my head get bored and go for a stroll out through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing.

It was pretty good- a lot of meaning put into it. :) Good job.
