Loved you without question

Danced for you

Cried for you.


Wanted to be an artist

A novelist

An archaeologist.


Was comforted by the smell of your cigarettes

Wanted to spend more time with you

Tried her best.


Always wanted to know you better

Tried to get close

Clung to bits & pieces of stories.


Always tried to be quiet

To help

To find what was lost.


Loved you

Just as

I love you,

But I know now

You were wrong.

Children should be children

While they can.

They should not be exposed to things so adult

Just to be close to their parents.

To gain their approval.

Parents should be parents.

She didn’t know that.

She just wanted to be close to you.

To gain your approval.

She hasn’t forgotten.

She can’t.
