I can’t believe I’m doing this
I'm watching you walk away
Your back is turned
You’re on your way to a life
Without the burden of me
You left me with strangers
Nobody I knew
My life was your mistake
A damper on you life

A naive, ignorant child I was
however, growing up, experiencing life
my thoughts have grown less centered
around all things that were me
I started thinking about reasons
why’s and what-made-yous,
and I have thought long and
hard

you left when I was younger
I don’t really remember you
you don’t remember me at all
but, I love you

no matter what people believe
or try to make me believe
I love you, always have
I now understand you reasons
I get you point of view
you weren’t ready
to look after an infant
child, daughter

you hold a chunk of my heart
I cry for our lost relationship sometimes
and laugh at things I could picture us doing
but know now, please hear me
I forgive you
I love you
Rose,
my mother

i wrote this when i came to terms with my mom's reasons for leaving, and hurting me, and that wasn't too long ago, mind you...

ok, well my sister was going through my poetry on here, and she told me that there are some spelling errors... i think everybody knows where they are, and i'm sorry for them... and does anybody know if you can fix something once its up? like editing and fixing typos?

This is amazing. To come to terms with that and create a work like this out of it is.... astounding. I would never have the strength to do that.
