You Made a Choice

I learned to drive today,

Did pretty well,

But you had nothing to say

Because you weren't there.


I graduated last year

A huge celebration with friends.

We had it right here,

But you didn't come.


I found the man of my dreams,

Now we're happily married

And yet it seems

You still don't care.


I have kids now

Several children my own,

Still I don't understand how

They don't matter to you.


You made your choice

To ignore me forever,

You used your own voice,

And now you're a stranger.


Why do you care

After all this time?

You've given me too much to bare,

You're not a part of my life.
