Poem -

My love my life

My love my life

To my babies I am sorry
i was always 
In a hurry
Running to jobs
I had to do
That  took my time
away from you
I needed something
For my pain
And didn't think of you
What a selfish thing for 
A mother to do
Now I sit alone
In a room thats always dark
I tore our worlds apart
Searching for a sign of you
Your voice your smell
Are hidden well
No cuddles laughs or smiling eyes
I'm punished for my
Greedy lies
As I look up to see
Your no longer here with me.

this is why we write our hearts out and sometimes re read our words, to recognized our mistakes, and find a way do change the present, I can totally relate to this heart breaking write : (

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
