By Kathy L.

Hard as I tried
And many tears I cried
But the day did arrive
When I was able to say good-bye

I know I did my best but
I could not pass your test
Perhaps you look at me with disgust
What was it I wish I knew you didn’t trust

In my heart I know my love was always there
But you never did seem to care
A perfect parent I will never be
But as for guilt I am free

I pray for you each and every night
That you will see me in a different light
But if that is not what is meant to be
I cherish the love of two out of three
