Alone To Die By Yourself - Poem by jeannie schmidt

I promised you I'd always be there
When you needed me most, you were all alone
How do I learn to live with the fact
I broke a promise I can't take back
Alone were you, in the cool morning air
Alone by yourself, through that aweful nightmare
Alone by yourself when you got taken from me
No one to hold your broken bones
No one to help you; you were alone, alone
With a mothers love I should have been there
To hold you through that aweful nightmare
Now that you're gone, I hate myself
I left you alone, to die by yourself

    I seriously almost cried.
    This seems like a poem that my mother would write me.
    I don't want to get too far into detail, but she has left me alone a few times before.
    I like this alot.
    Thank you.
