This is for you
The mother who lied
Who cradled a glass
Instead of your child

You ask me to forgive
For the life, you let pass by
A life of mere existence
For a child who didn’t cry

Did you ignore?
Or perhaps not care
If she woke in the dark
To find you not there

A lonely child
With a silent voice
To care for you
Her only choice

No words of love
No warm embrace
An empty heart
And a tear stained face

You ask me to forgive
That I cannot do
I won’t betray the child
Or dismiss what she went through

You have always had my heart
it didn't fully break
Forgive yourself the past
And a future we might make.
