NaPoWriMo day 3 (late night posting)

“My GB”

My baby came home to surprise me

She told me she wouldn’t be here

I cried when she walked in my room tonight

It seemed like it’d been a whole year

She’s actually been gone just three months

But I missed her as if it’d been longer

Each time that she leaves I think it’ll be easy

But it seems the pain gets that much stronger

She’s my girl, my shoulder, my lifeline

She’s my sunshine, my heartbeat, my rock

She makes me so proud to be her mom

She’s got best daughter on lock

This poem may not be inspiring

To anyone who gives it a read

But it’s not to inspire or to change you

I don’t need you to follow my lead-

I just wanted to put it on paper

My feelings for my girl GB

See without her to keep  me in line

I know not where I’d be.
