In honor of national poetry month, I honor two of my biggest loves. My mother and my father who is in heaven.
Because you loved me you gave me life
You set aside your pain and strife
You never even had any doubt
I wasn’t planned but you figured it out
You were divorced when I was three
It was ok because you both still loved me
I know your pain was difficult to do but you still
Gave us girls the best of both of you.
I’m so happy you ended up friends.
I remember when you made amends
You didn’t know one of you would leave
Three little girls left behind to silently grieve
It’s ok, mom figured it out.
She did her best and we all turned out
Better than you ever could have dreamed!
Three outspoken mouths like you’ve never seen
I know that God had a plan
When he took you to heaven to be an even better man
I love this photo of the two of you
A reminder of a time that was honest and true
I know one day we will all meet again
Maybe we will spend it somewhere on the sand
Until that day comes I have this picture of you
To remind me that I’m worthy of love because I came from both of you ❤️❤️❤️
I love my mom and also loved my dad who passed away at 36I know he is reading this now.
