Telling Strangers

I tell strangers about you,but only about the time we were happy. I paint a picture of you where you didn’t leave a knife in my back. I’ve become so good at it that I learned to believe on my own lies. And when they say how beautiful our love story is,I just smile and wonder if you tell strangers about me.

    When my son got old enough to talk, he would ask what happened to my daddy? I’d smile and tell him: “Your daddy got sick and had to go away from us.” Truth is, that is the truth. He was addicted to drugs which made him a violent, angry, and abusive individual. Yet, my 3 year old wouldn’t understand such things at that time…but deep within my heart, I believed what I had stated.

    Then about a year later, I took my son to a hospital to bring balloons to a friend. My son asked me, “Are we going to see my father?” With a tear in my eye, I replied: “No, he isn’t here. We’re going to visit a friend of mine.”

    A couple months after that my son was sitting next to a friend out in her car and they were waiting on me. When I got to the car my friend exclaimed, “You are not going to believe what your son just said!” I’m like what did he say? She told me: “He said that when he was a baby, he used to have a father. But now, he doesn’t need a father for he is not a baby anymore.”

      I am sorry to hear about your husband.
      But I am happy to see the courage you and your son are owning. If I would have been at your place I would have I don’t know what would I’d do. You have passed the test of life.You are a strong lady and I must say you have passed the test of being a good mother. I would just say that you should tell your son about this. This will help you only. I believe he is grewn up by now and he will accept the truth.
