 Reflections of My Heart

Looking Through My Lifes Window My Life's Book

Looking Through My Life's Window
My Life's Book

 My life's book
Is a series of chapters
I was the youngest of three
Back then life brought such laughter

Adolescence brought life changes
With an absent mother
When school was out
We were sent to others

Don't get me wrong
Her care wasn't as it should
But she did love us
The only way she could

Oh the teen years
Were filled with many challenges
Changes raging thru me
Ahead so many unknown bridges

But it is then
My voice was found
I spoke my heart
My opinion newfound

As an adult
With two children on our own
Many hard lessons learned
Looking back, oh how I had grown

But I still had no idea
Of the who I was
Being what others wanted
One of my biggest flaws

It took me years
Of really digging deep
But finally I found
The me to keep

In my last chapter
I like who I became
I am who I am
Is my greatest life's fame.

But I owe who I am
to one so dear
By example you showed
I had nothing to fear

Happy Father's Day Poppa
I love and miss you so much
Thank You For Being My Dad

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ

 Thank You For Being My Dad
