A Forgiven Chance - Poem by edie parker
Through a waste away past, a life not worth living,
I thought I've done things, that were not forgiving.
Like denying my Bobby, the children he loves so much,
and denying him me, when he yearned for my touch.
And neglecting the like, of my very own seed,
not htinking of the time or the love that they'd need,
My prioritied were wacked, and this went on and on,
Till the boyfriend I loved, and the children was gone.
I thought to myself ' This is the end',
I had not one person, that I could call a friend.
I was so all alone, and in great, great dispair,
I had no one to love, and no one to care.
I was ripping and running, no home and no job,
So I went to vermont, I just had to see Bob.
I thought that he'd hate me, but I just had to see,
If he had any love, in his heart left for me.
I was scared to call him, thinking he would reject,
I wasn't quite sure, just what to exspect,
He had tr uly forgave me, for my betrayal and lies.
I cried as I held him. I just couldn't let go,
I tiold him I'm sorry, and that I loved him so.
I know I hurt him, and caused him deep pain,
And I promies my Bobby, not to hurt him again.
He gave me a chance, and he gave me his touch,
I just couldn't believe, that someone loved me that much.
He said not to worry, he said not to fuss,
That one dat the children, will come look for us.
Well weeks turnrd into months, and months turned into years,
We thought of our children, as we shared the tears.
But we knew they'd come back, that there'd be a day,
When the children I 've lost, would come find their way.
Now 'Bobs' in some trouble, cause of boose and crack,
I left him and told him, we'd never get back.
Now 'he' wants a chance, to be back in my life,
To hold me and love me, and make me his wife.
I guess I'm not hitnking, of when he forgave me,
And opened my eyes, and gave hope so I'd see.
After how he forgave me, I just don't truly know,
How i could be so selfish, and just let him go
Throught all of this mess, a blessing began to unfold,
The children had found us, just as Bob had foretold.
Now I'll go to kentucky, and my children I'll find,
Don; t need Bob nomore, So i'll leave him behind.
I do have to say, no matter what I have done,
Bob always forgave me, and made me number one.
Maybe due to the kids, and now that they/ve found,
Maybe thats what was needed, to turn Bob around.
Maybe I should just read, this poem once again,
Before I truly deside, to put 'us' to an end.
Maybe I'll just forgive him, I'll just have to see,
Maybe give him a chance, as he once game me
