    You were taken from me, as I sit and I thought
    Life’s lessons by you have never been taught
    6 months I was when he took you from me
    Took away your life when you were just 18
    How could he do it with me in your arms?
    The Mother of his child, how could he harm?
    My Grandmother told me you were leaving him and taking me too
    This is the reason why he took your life away from you
    The first time I saw him my mind went numb
    I asked the “question” he told a lie
    Said it was an accident the way that you died
    He’s my Father although I don’t consider him such
    Feelings for him have never been much
    Outside of hurt anger and confusion
    I can’t accept him and definitely can’t call him Dad
    Every thought of him inside makes me mad
    I’m older now and they say forgive and forget
    I’m still not in a place where I can do that yet
    If he can bring you back and make my life whole
    Give you back the life that he stole
    Then I’ll forgive him and speak to him too
    This won’t happen so I have to live without you
    I go through each day hoping your looking after your Grandchild and me
    Hoping you’re proud of us and guiding our destinies
    We will love you always Mother
    In our hearts you will always be

    sadly sad deep emotional feeling is felt
    and the facts of how a life was striped
    so sorry and i feel u too
    forgive but never forget is the only thing to do
    silent prayer to almighty to caress ya pain
    and i know still the tears stain
    peace unto ya humble heart

    I totally agree with $$, forgive so that your soul may be whole & forgiven 4 your transgressions, but definitely never forget.

    Don't dwell on the bad that's passed cuz then you'd never truly feel the good that's come 2 past.

    Very heartfelt piece & my heart feels your grief.

    Soulfelt peace.

    Some tragedies in life are unbearable. And yet, somehow, we go on. I feel this, and am filled with sorrow. Peace and keep writing.

    this piece was emotively heart wrenching
    I'm a firm believer that vengeance is the lords
    I can empathize for the difficulty of
    trying to forgive anyone that takes
    a mother from a child...
    your words are truly felt
    prayers be with you...
