First came my birth. Joys and elation. Mother, Father, Son. A family occasion. A few years on earth. Family trials and evasion. Inner demons latching on. Tarnished reputation. Struggle loses worth. An end to relation. A strained love shared. But no more expectations. Twenty years on earth. Full of lost love and regret. Know that I love you father. Our time together I will not forget.

Your Son

I want to thank Maria, my fatherís girlfriend of almost 7 yrs., for being there for him through all the good and bad times. I cannot express in words what that means to me.
