She bore you for months nine,

She took the pain as you came into the world,

She denied you things that you liked,

for your own good,

For the love was always there.


He was not there the day you were born,

He wasn’t around for your successes,

that he was providing for,

He yelled at you as he prepped you for life,

Yet, the love was always there.


He brought you flowers,

He brought you chocolate,

He brought you a teddy bear too.

He just didn’t have the need to spend time with you,

Because you know, the love is always there.
