Just to Let You Know MAG

By MaryEllen, CT, Middletown, CT

Your butchering words
In the beginning
Went through my head
As a child who listens
To every word you say

Your constant sarcasm
Your words which
I thought were the truth
The never giving up

Just to let you know, Dad
Those butchering words
To me are now worthless
For I know now
It was only your sickness

Punctuation, anyone?

“wow this was very nice it made my day thank you”

It reminds me of the one I posted. Doesn't have very many views, thought : ( I'm sorry for your pain, darlin'. My father wasn't the kindest, either.
