childhood memories
are far and few
there's more missing
than the love i never knew
no matter how far i ran
or how fast i walked
there was something inside me
that darkness wanted and stalked
taking pieces of my heart
as the innocense they stole
making a little girl
be a women under forced control
with a will to grow
and never become as they are
with all their hate
i wished upon many a star
the sea called to me
so i moved to be near
where i found peace
and one who loved me dear
he helped me get over
the torment and pain
gave me the gift of life
a son, family, made me his wife
soon all that
was taken away
as was what was left
of my heart that day
my lifemy joy
my son,a love i never knew
i would never stop loving
or believing in you
a gift from god
our creater above
born on Easter
along with my birth,his feel of love
times where good
times where bad
tears of joy
tears of sad
then comes a time
i will always remember
i was saying i believe in god
but self belief, never surrender
late in the night
i was awoken
fear filled my room
i couldnt move, nor words be spoken
at the end of my bed
i could sense him there
so big and strong
only darkness no face did he bare
again i try to scream
for my son
while trying to reach for light
a real struggle had just begun
when all that
mattered to me
was my son
a burst of strength
and i became free
as the light came on
so did the words
out of me
this is the first
of memories i have told
next will be memories
from the heart & soul I hold

An enjoyable though sad read.  Getting things out is a long journey but know there are benefits at the end.  Good luck!

when there are so many memories that try to hide, it can take a lifetime to set some of them free.
But when you finally do, there is a sense of relief that rushes in to fill all those empty spots. Sending you warm thoughts of understanding, hoping you have found some comfort in writing this out...a catharsis.
