WHAT HAVE I DONE?

WHAT HAVE I DONE?
(This was the last time me and my family
were altogether, Christmas Eve 2009)
 
Out in this world all on my own,
Feeling lost and feeling alone.
I ask myself,
What have I done to hurt you?
 
Out in this world so cold and afraid,
Wondering how I will face another day.
I ask myself,
What have I done to hurt you?
 
I was there to help you,
Through bad times.
Also when life was fine,
I ask myself what is/was my crime.
What have I done?
 
You've deprived me  the right
My grandchildren to see.
If they saw me out
They wouldn't reconise me.
What have I done?
 
I should belong to the family I love so dear,
But you have different plans on that score I fear.
Can't you forget the past?
And let me see a happy future at last?
What have I done?

  3. Definitely a poem written from the heart. Whatever has happened within your family I hope things can be reconciled in the not-too-distant future and you can be happy again. Take care.

  5. I can feel for you. Though I'm not in the same circumstances, I rarely see my grandchildren and it does make me sad. I guess I could change things, but change is not always financially practical and easy to do.

    Yvonne, you got those memories so treasure them. Try your best to get past the pain and make your life the best it can be under the circumstances. I wish you well.

  6. Have you ever asked them why they don't want to have a relationship with you?
