Its been way over a year, since I've heard anything from you,
do you ever wonder how I am...or what I'm going thru.
Its been even longer since you actually laid eyes on me,
Out of sight and out of mind is the way it seems to be.
Why is it so damn easy for you to just simply walk away,
thru the years you've improved this game, denial is the card you always play.
How does one just erase years of the ties that bind,
how do you justify ... your leaving this all behind.
I'll no longer make an effort or excuses for you,
someday you will be alone, then what will you do.
I rarely think about you, very much anymore...
I guess that means my heart has started closing doors.
You made your own choices, I'm not in your plans,
can anyone explain it to me...to make me understand.
How can you completely pretend I was never here...
I've asked some really good questions...
could you please answer me ... "mother dear".

Janet Marie


this ones for you too... "Little SEEESTUR"...
love ya.


** repost from Dark Passions...

Butterfly... just wanted to share this with you...
yes, as we write we open those locked doors so that the pain can go out and healing come in...and we help others to know they too can heal in time.
your words always touch me...
take care, jm

 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

J.M.
This is so touching and so heart breaking, I used to make a mental list of all the questions that I would ask if I could but I've stopped doing that, when I was 21 I tried to contact my biological father at Christmas, He lived in Flordia and I live in Michigan as does all of his family, I found out that he died 30 miles from me only a few weeks before that of Lung Cancer and because of a promise that the made my mother he refused to let his family contact me.  If I had it to do over I would have gotten in touch with him much sooner just to ask him even one question....Why couldn't you love me?  Thank you so much for reposting this for me.  I loved it and we have yet another thing in common don't we
