The Shadows

I asked my daughter why she wanted to live with me?

She said, “Because you’re nice  “

This is a legacy that I can live with.

When I was in foster care… younger than she is now, someone asked me why I wanted to live with my mother…

I don’t remember what I answered.

My mother returned for me.

I never left my daughter.

Technically I was in the shadows against my will; hovering watching waiting…

The work being done now will hopefully guide her… knowing she is loved and wanted will suffice.
