Let’s start now. It’s okay.
I know you’ve been sad for so many days.
Saying goodbye, to what you deserved.
Acknowledging what was a broken childhood.
Tears are healthy, and the fear is real.
I know it is shocking, to finally feel.
You deserved better, you deserved to be loved.
You deserved to be heard. You deserved to be hugged.
You deserved to come first, to be nourished when fed.
To read books together, before going to bed.
You deserved to be nurtured, to receive a warm smile.
You deserved to be known. To be yourself as a child.
For so long now, you’ve been running away.
It’s time to come home now, today is the day.
I welcome you with adoration,
With open arms and admiration.
All those things, that you deserved,
I’ll give you now, my darling girl.
