A Mother's Plea

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.
