Upon this doorstep, I’m wondering where you are.
What happened to our life together?
To the love you wanted to give to me?
Why did you abandon me? I’m your only child.
What was so much more important
than an infant with your blood?
What was so horrible that you couldn’t forgive me?
Surely it was something I’ve done.
What was it that I did to hurt you?
I’m sorry, so sorry.
If you’ll just tell me what it was I did to cause you pain,
I promise I’ll never do it again.
Well maybe it was better that I not bother you
if I bring you that much heartache.
I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to love you.
I just did.
Live a happy life.
Your past.
