Changes - Poem by Lizzy Scott

I may not always say thank you
For what you have done for me.
I may not always be in a good mood
Or the best that I could be.

But I love you so much,
Because you are always there.
I may not always say it,
But I know you really care.

I may not say I love you
Every day and every week,
But I say it in my head
Every minute and in the words I speak.

You’ve brought me up
And cared for me
And cared for all my needs.
You’ve helped me through troubles so unselfishly,

And at times I’ve thrown it right back at you
Without thinking of your feelings.

It’s just you and me now,
All the other kids are gone.
I miss our nice big family,
The family I thought I’d won.

But this is a new kind of family,
The one of just us two.
You care for me,
And now I care for you.

And though we’re alone on your birthday,
Just sitting at home watching TV.
I love you more than you will ever know,
And that’s how it should be.

Happy birthday, Dad,
I hope you don’t feel alone.
Maybe one day the family will be back together,
Even though all the kids are now grown.

Things have changed and are still changing
And they always will.
I know why the changing happens,
But inside, do I still?

Not the ordinary family,
And a long shot from normal.
But what defines normality?
It doesn’t define special.
