You were my tiny angel. But you set out on your own. You hid the truth. You broke my heart. Now I see me in you....

I SEE ME IN YOU

You were so very tiny

when I gave birth to you

Your dad was so excited

when the nurse told him the news

********

Sir you have a baby girl

as he proudly paced the floor

But it dont compare to how I felt

when they brought you through the door

********

As the joy overwhelmed me

I thought back to my younger years

How I had hurt my mom and dad

causing them so many tears

********

Now here you are this baby girl

that God has sent to me

Knowing soon you will be grown

and I must set you free

********

But you left home so very soon

I did`nt have a clue

That all the while you lied to me

now I must pay my due

********

These same words my mother said

I`ve found to be so true

When I look beyond your eyes

I see me in you

Angellynn
