    You said you just had to have him and you wouldn't take
    no for an answer...even when you found out he was an
    Exotic dancer...knowing your fragile ego would not be able
    to handle the strain...Don't know what the he11 was going
    through your brain.

    You said you were having his baby and that after you were
    married he would settle down...stop taking extra's from the
    regulars and start coming home. Don't know why you thought
    paper could fix what was wrong with the soul...But, I was your
    Bridesmaid any way and even sang a song...It was so wrong.

    Ten months later the baby looks just like him , a junior heartbreaker
    was what was playing through my brain. Daddy went MIA around about
    the second hour of Labor, he put in the order but wasn't there for the
    delivery...So I guess he wanted it returned to sender...really he had gone
    out on an all night bender!

    Thought you were serious when the baby was ready to walk , all that
    "I'm leaving his *** !" talk...But, you stayed another year, til it brought
    down the last and final tear. You found you had an STD, and the foul
    *** heathen hollered "Don't look at me!". What were you thinking why
    did you stay, other men can rock your world and maybe they won't make
    you pay! I know that's wrong but you need to be strong, you got a male
    child to bring up...Do you want him to be like DAD??????????

    You asked to go to church that day, said you needed some prayer and
    you had something private to say. Well the heathen was home watching
    the child, at least that's what you said. I just keep remembering what is
    going through your head. How could someone so beautiful , so smart
    get involved with someone who didn't give a Fart!...just messing with your
    heart! You were quiet all day, we went to lunch , you didn't speak much
    you didn't even do your usual salad munch!

    When you got home you wouldn't let me come in...you smiled and told
    me I was your very best friend. I hugged you and smiled and told you the
    same and said girl when you get divorced be sure and take back your name.
    I had no idea that your were on the total downward spiral...
    Heading nowhere fast, this marriage and you might not last.
    I called at seven and then at eight, again at nine and then I couldn't wait.

    I drove in my car a very short distance, and all the time at the last exit
    I had some mental resistance... "Would she do something crazy?" ,
    "Would he?" Please let me talk some sense in her head, and for God
    sake don't let somebody be dead...I'm the Godmother to that sweet
    lil child. I must confess...my prayer real short
    "GOD BLESS THIS MESS!"

    One car in the driveway, no ambulance or cops, my heart flutter's then drops!
    I gather myself and on up the walk me and Jesus have a lil talk!
    Lord have mercy on this your servant, let my eyes be ever observant.
    Let your mercy extend to my friend and even to that "heathen" I refer to as
    him. AMEN
    At the door it seems real silent, I don't know exactly what this meant.
    Were they just sleeping? Or maybe just gone...was it bad or maybe
    they were just not at home.

    You opened the door and your eyes were swollen shut!
    I scream..."Where is that heathen I am going to kick his butt?"
    No,no you cried, as I thought about it I should have known you
    might lie...He didn't hit me in my eye, I sent him packing and
    then I cried..."You don't mind if I check on Junior?" I say.
    God Bless this Mess!
    I have had one serious day...as I look in each door and I see
    my godson, I exhale in relief, my work has just begun...

    We often choose foolishly in love,not knowing what we are thinking of.
    Looking on the outside and not one glance within making him your
    lover before you make him your friend. Forcing parenthood on unfit
    men...that is even the bigger sin. I thank God for my sister/friend.
    And I swear I will pay for the background check if she ever marries
    again. My daddy preached this sermon once, "GOD BLESS THIS MESS"
    and I didn't really get it then! How we try and do everything without God's guidance
    is why we end up in harms way...Stop! WATCH and PRAY!

    * I get it Daddy...RIP
