A Mothers Wish - Poem by Melissa Furey

A woman told her husband she wanted a divorce
She told him that it was because she didn't love him anymore
She gave him full custody of her kids
And its the best thing she ever did

She had a rare cancer and was going to die
She didn't want her husband to know So she had to lie
She wanted to make sure the kids had a mum
So she made sure they had one before she was gone

She was over joyed when her ex husband decided to marry
She died a few days after but she went happy
Her kids never got a chance to say goodbye
So they couldn't help but cry

The mum wrote a letter in her will
She covered the cost of the funeral bill
She wanted to her ex husband she never stopped loving him
But she for his sake she kept that secret within

Ten years later the kids found a letter explaining what she had done
They went to her grave and told her they loved her more than anyone
They were thankful they had a new mum that was always there
But they were more thankful for their real mum because she always cared

    She should have been honest with her husband and children
    from the start. I see what she did as not noble but deceitful. (Report) Reply
