What I would tell her…

Hi sweet girl.

I know you’re smiling, but you aren’t fooling anyone.

I know the fear you lived in, I know how scared you were to go home.

I know that at home lies addiction and abuse, and all you wanted to do is run.

I know you kept up appearances, kept the smile on your face and the sugar in your voice, to protect the innocent little ones who looked to you for comfort.

I know you took the verbal assaults, the physical attacks and emotional punches to keep anyone from knowing.

Did your best to shield your children from the stranger who lived in your home.

You did well, you tried to hold the world together for far too long.

It’s ok that it fell apart. You took the broken pieces and built something new and amazing.

You took the strength you learned then, and nurtured it, and applied it to other parts of your life.

You didn’t know it then, but you would rise from the ashes, you are the hero you needed.

If I could hug you, I wouldn’t let go.
