For my daughter composed mainly on the drive home from her house...

She gave him her love
And he gave his
They were both 17 at the time.

Their love was still there
Through college and work
She thought he would be there forever.

She was looking at dresses
She had chosen a ring
But her friends said she might want to think.

He still liked to party
With his buddies each night
While she sat home alone with the dog.

He was the life of each party
They all loved him for sure
But each night had to end with a drink.

She started to nag him
She wanted him home
“You need to grow up,” she would say.

So he’s take her to dinner
Then buy her a rose
And he’d sit by her side for the night.

But before too long
He was out there again
“Just change him, dear God” she would pray.

Over time this got old
She continued to scold
One night he just got up and left

She cried for two weeks
He picked up his stuff
Now she’s going back home to her Dad.

Her cute little house
Someone else will live in
Her life is all packed up in boxes.

It’s hard to start over
Six years after High School
But she’s strong and she’ll get through the pain

I love her so much
This I want her to know:
She can do this, her life lies ahead.

She deserves so much more
God has plans for her life
Sweet daughter, you’ll find love again.

Loving compassion from mother to daughter. One of the hardest things in life is seeing our children hurting, physically or emotionally. Best wishes for your daughter as she navigates this bend in the road. I'll pray for her while this is fresh on my mind.

Sandy, oh, how touching! Life can bring hardships and I'm sure this one burnt your daughter's soul. Six years is a long time and then to lose out after all. You've accomplished a great write by bringing it to life through this poem. Most times though, those who love to party find it hard to give it up and they enjoy the attention they are getting from it. I'm sure your daughter will find new love and move on with her life.

Sandy, Karen is right. this is a excellant write for a topic that is deep with emotion. I bet this was hard to write...Nice job displaying a brief history while allowing your feelings to shine fourth.

A wonderful write on such a sensitive subject that seems to replay itself over and over. Very sensitively written...

Be safe,
