Cup Of Spa

 
Today would have been my father's birthday.
The road to the cemetery where he is buried
is on the same road that leads to Mother's home.
She has had to take
a different route to get here,
because the roads to her home
have been closed since Hurricane dolly...
 
I received a phone call from
my firstborn daughter yesterday.
She is coming to the Valley for a visit,
because her grandfather past away yesterday.
 
I was up most of the night
thinking about him.
It brought back a lot of feelings of
anger and injustice,
He and his wife hid my firstborn
from me for so many years.
Every time I would ask for her,
they refused to tell me where she was.
She was out of my life
from the age of six
until she paid money to find me.
Little did I know that
she was living with them!
Makes me angry
that we lost out on her childhood
& that they made her believe
that I didn't want her.
 
I was up last night,
thinking about their visit
& trying to find the bag
where I put some things for the children.
Thank God I found it! Yay!
