This is ppoem well put for any woman who has gone through times like this,and left alone after so much of her life was spent with the man she thought realy loved her. Iam a single parent and the mother of our child left us in a simiular way and didnt even bother to look back at her 2yr old child she was leaveing behind,she now is six and stays with me ,and I hope that something like that doesnt happen to her. I hope to find someone I can share my live with,as I know she will some day (your mom) and have the courage to move on.

I have just recently broken up with my lover, Not by my choice at all, I too wondered and still do, what I could have done to keep him with me. Its been so very hard for me, I've cried and prayed for his return, knowing that to stay with him is to desert myself. This poem, will hopefully give me the power and will to move on and find life out side of that relationship.
