I Live My Life For Them.... - Poem by Lesa MRK

I live my life for them,
As sometimes it is hard to live it for me....
With all the pain I've known,
And all the sorrow I see.

I live my life for them,
As sometimes I cannot face another day....
When teardrops I must fight
And despair stands in the way.

I live my life for them,
For through their laughter I truly smile....
And forget for a moment the heartache,
That lingers with every mile.

I live my life for them-
My children, carriers of my heart....
We've faught the toughest battle,
And it's meaning will not depart.

    Beautiful Lesa I love your feelings like myself you tend to just spill them and this leads to lovely poetry.
