from the people we serve...
Not Enough Words…
My heart stopped the 1st time I heard yours beat,
you have no clue my love how many struggles we overcame, it was a great feat.
You gave me courage and hope when I had none,
everything that I can claim you helped me overcome!
At night I’d sing to you and you’d sing back,
the prayers I couldn’t pray you held the Faith that I lacked.
Maybe you were my Guardian Angel—my Shepherd through the dark and pain,
I don’t think I’ll ever lose you—inside me you’ll always remain.
I’ll not get to see you grow or see your 1st step.
I may not come to birthdays or be there when you’re upset.
However my heart & mind and spirit will be with you every single day,
just like I was guiding you in every single way.
The hardest thing I ever did was having to give you away,
and the second hardest thing was not being able to tell you all I had to say.
Loyalty Before Respect
There have been times
I have been used
I have been abused
I have been neglected
I have been betrayed
Not just by friends
Not just by ex-lovers
But also by my blood—
Caused the want and need
to numb the pain that
was left behind through
the needle to protect what’s
left of a broken and damaged heart
led by the stars, met by fate
heart slowly finding warmth
to trust and love again as
she presses on and finds a way
to love her very own self.
