I'M A Parent Too... - Poem by david lessard

You said you do not love me,
You said you did not care;
You took the kids and left me,
Was that considered fair?

Must the father give up all,
Must the father give up his child?
When you take away the love,
Why must you go away hog-wild?

I'm a parent too, not just a body,
I'm a dad, not just a worn out man;
Must you take away my children,
Till I've nothing on which to stand?

Life's a two way street, not one way,
Must you hide them from my sight?
They're as much mine, as they're yours,
Doesn't that sound proper and right?

The kids still love me, even if you don't,
They belong to me as they belong to you;
We we went our separate, lonely ways,
That don't mean their life with me, was through
