The forgotten gift

Have you forgotten
Of the gift
That was given to you?
I sure did.
I am glad I’ve come
To that awakening.

I am a treasure
Only one can possess.
People walk by
Looking at the cover
But not really taking time
To look within.
The few that do
Keep it close at heart.

Over time it becomes
I have become a forgotten gift.
I forgot my value.
I forgot what I was.
I am a girl that was
Given to my mother
When my father asked
Her the what-do-you-want-from-me

She wanted a girl
So here I am
The only girl out of 4 boy.
I’ve forgotten but
That will not happen again.
I assure you.
