How Do I

How do I talk to you
after all this time
You who are
the same as me
so very different
with whom we shared
and formed dreams
and through adversity
rejoiced in the
arrival of
your child
My love for you
never ended
the hurt you caused
runs as deep
as my love
for you now
What am I to do
Dear God…
What am I to do…
I want you back
I don’t know how
to let you in
without feeling
this hurt
this rage
You are my flesh
You are my blood
I do love you
but I don’t know
what to do
