' I'M Sorry ' - Poem by Tanya Woodard

Oh, dear daughter,
I'm sorry that I hurt you,
I'm sorry that I was not there,
I'm sorry for the way things are,
I'm sorry that you didn't think I cared.
Maybe one day the pain will ease and
being unforgiving will cease, until then
my dear daughter
I'm sorry.

    This is the very first time in my entire life I have ever felt exactly the way this poem reads. It is very humbling. I never would wish that feeling of dispair on any mother as I caused a mess and for that I AM Sorry. I Love You Mariah With my Heart And full being. Please Forgive Mommy.Please (Report)Reply
