Life

I once had a daughter who trusted in me
I remember her childhood, the fun, the laughs and the glee
It would shine from her face - always landing on me
A life so young - it's cruel, you see.
Life.

School was not easy she struggled along
School was tough - So was I - I was wrong.
But how can one redeem? What's happened and gone
You can't - we all try - and have to move on.
Life.

Its not that easy, in fact, it's incredibly hard
Full of torment and pain
Something, I feel, will always remain.
Life.

When one's only true possession is abused
Life's real meaning must surely be mused
Even sweet words written kindly by friend or bard
Still leaves torment and pain - it's so hard.
Life.

I will get over and come out on top - I must.
For the torment and pain must surely stop
I find it so hard to endure year by year
It never gets better, always a tear
There's no justice here.
Life

The tears have been plenty and not hard to find
Not like the true friend I now have in mind
But that's another matter, it'll workout fine - But.
The walkout - The marriage - Was so unkind
Life

And now there's a new face to add into her life
They come in different sizes - You see, she's a wife
Look after - Cherish - But above all keep him close
He's yours forever
But I love you the most.

Hi PeterPeter,

By your words it seems that you now understand for the most part what went wrong and you seem to posses the strength to come out on top, I wish you the best of luck.

Very nicely done poem,

Cerenity
