I Want to Say How Proud I Am
I want to say how proud I am of you
you have broken free of your addiction.
It's something I don't know
that I could do
Were I so sorely tried by your affliction.
of growing up were on my own,
As you were in the belly of your
The two of us indifferent and alone,
Most in need of love
while loving least.
How sad! That you and I have lost those
I, of childhood, and you, of your only child.
But now's the
time for joy and not for tears,
For you are well, and we are
Whatever life may bring or time may prove,
Know that you
will always have my love.
