Heavy is the crown of responsibility.
You don’t know the sacrifices I made for stability.
You lovingly called me “Dear Mother”
But now in your silence you call me “Other”.
The years I have taken to teach you
Are shattered in the heights I can’t reach to.
We may not be on the same page of life
This thing between us shouldn’t cause such strife.
I’m the one that had to make a hard decision
Now I pray you won’t keep up with this division.
My heart was truly hurt
By the words you spoke, so curt.
Now when I attempt to call
You won’t pick up the phone at all.
If you say God lives in your heart
Then why are you willing to let us fall apart?
I pray your heart will soon forgive
Because this is no way for us to live.
To. my adult estranged child
I have loved you this whole while.
So if you won’t allow a face to face
May God bless you with His peace, love and grace.
