Improvement

I taught you everything you knew
Shaped you to the man you are now
Held you up
When you felt down
Stayed up late
To make you smile

I wrote poetry and prose
For your own entertainment
Made you my muse
And so much more

But now that you’ve improved
Become the better man
You leave me behind
For another girl

I was never your mother
I never had to take on that responsibility
I helped you
Because I loved you

Is this your thanks?
