“The children are
by a pathetic hardness
They cannot seem to
forgive and forget.”
BB p 134
So the drunk did not hang out at the bar,
did not belong to the social club,
they stayed home and got plastered.
Physically he was home,
emotionally he was nowhere, and although
the children saw him they did not know him. (or her)
Stop the drinking, sober up, work the program,
grow up emotionally, change what you must
and above all learn to be patient,
children will be the last to buy into the new sober parent.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
