A moms Love

As a lad I always wanted what my friends had. Never could I understand why I never fit into your plans. You were there when I was young. Wish I could remember the fun.
Then you started to fade away.. I can’t remember the memories made A little girl is all I was Looking for a mother’s love.
Broken promises were your gifts to me All I wanted was for you to see The alcohol was destroying our lives And you never even thought twice. Sitting in a bar is where you could be found. All the drugs that got your love. Here I was still searching for a mom.
I was 13 and on my own When you told me you were not coming home. As the tears filled up in my eyes. You just kept walking and never turned to see me cry.
I thought my life was over that day. Until I realized you never wanted to stay. Always thought I did something wrong. Why else would a mom walk out?
Years have passed by and I survived. Now you’re back wanting in my life You tore my heart out and kicked it around. Im not sure I can forgive you now.
The flame in my heart has gone out. No longer do I search for your love. Because I know you won’t love me back.

    You grew up, it sounds like. But as Scribe says here, I hope you can still forgive. By letting go, you are halfway there. I think you are much happier now, aren't you, Cory/ I sure hope so.
