Poetry 

You don’t know her anymore,
I know you think you do.

She’s burned in your brain,

Stuck in her youth.

She’s a woman now.

But you missed that,

Didn’t you,

When you walked out on me,

You left her too.
I carried my daughter,

Felt her in my womb,

A bond never broken,

None a mother would choose.
Mothers don’t leave.

Fathers stay true.

My parents didn’t read

That book of truth. 
You don’t know her anymore,

Her wisdom and her growth,

Her spirit and her fight

The perseverance she’s shown.

You wouldn’t know.
You left her,

You didn’t intend to.

You didn’t think your choice through.

When you abandoned me, 

You lost her too.
I know her.

It’s what a real mother does.

She stays.

She never gives up. 

THAT is a real mother’s love.
