So I wrote this poem right before I had my daughter in 2002:
Thoughts enter my mind of the things that are not seen,
Wondering why my life is headed down this path,
Who would’ve thought that I would be where I am today?
Soon to give birth to a little child inside of me,
Praying that nothing bad would ever fall upon you,
Wanting you to exceed to a higher level than me,
Knowimg that you will depend on me to help you grow,
Grow into a well educated and beautiful young lady,
And I know that being a single mother won’t be easy,
But I’m willing to give it my all,
Praying that I will never steer you into the wrong path,
Oh how, I can’t wait until we get the chance to meet each other,
But what I want to say now is that I love you with all my heart,
And I always will.
