To My Daughter

I wish I could tell you how proud I am of you…..
How much I love you.
I’m so sorry that words have come between us.
You have always been so much a part of my life; and I miss you
You are more than just a daughter to me. You are my best friend.
You helped me get through so many difficult things throughout my life.
You cheered me up when no one else could.
You made me laugh when I wanted to cry.

You gave me 4 very precious grandchildren.
And you raised them with little help from their fathers.
For 19 years, they have been a very big part of my life….
From the moment they were born, I was there with you.
Birthdays, Holidays, Vacations, School, Sports,
and so far, one graduation.
I have thousands of photographs,
and a million more memories-
but I don’t have you-
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect you would shut me completely out of your life for so long.
If I could turn back the hands of time,
I would take back all the hurtful things we said or done to each other.
And never let those things happen again.
Some day,
I hope you can forgive me and forget the past.
And you will allow me back in your life.
Until then,
I hope you know that I am so proud of the woman you have become…
Beautiful, Smart and Independent,
and a wonderful mother.

Maybe one day,
we can be friends again.
Until then
I love you!
and I miss you.
