“My Heart” by Virginia Muller


A small part of my heart died today,
after years of special caring, something inside just went away.
An adopted little girl made me a star in my barren role
She was given to me, making my life completely whole.
However something has happened that I need to convey
A small part of my heart died today.
A beautiful young lady who is truly adored,
but even as a child always felt she was ignored
Different from others, artful by birth,
But never could or would accept her true worth.
As the years passed on as they so quickly go by,
she grew up and we just couldn't see eye-to-eye.
However something has happened that I need to convey
A small part of my heart died today.
I've been blamed for many of her difficulties,
even as an adult in all various categories.
I've lived my entire life, feeling remorseful,
Wishing I could have helped by being more resourceful.
I've made many mistakes as we all do,
But I know that I've tried to retrieve and undo.
However something has happened that I need to convey
A small part of my heart died today.
Recent years have certainly proven my point,
we are born to do whatever is planned, even if it means to disappoint.
Falsehoods and deceit I have lived with for so long
I'm partially responsible and have enabled many the wrong.
I was trying desperately to help during her times of need,
well, the time has come that I need to concede.
I still love this child with all my life,
but I can no longer deal with all her strife.
Blessings to us both, it's been a rough, rocky path,
and we will one day forgive one another without any wrath.
Take care of yourself, my lovely baby,
Let go of your old life and just MAYBE!!!
We'll meet again on some future date,
and we'll make up for lost time, it's never too late.
I wish to regain that part of my heart
that somehow the years have torn apart.
