Crying At Your Window - Poem by Sandra Martyres

I knocked on your window
Hoping that you would answer
However that was not to be
You did not wish to hear me
You just sat in your corner
Smoking away incessantly
Coughing your way to glory
Or so you thought, no pleading
No caring, no cajoling worked.
Last night my fears came true
As I stood below your window
The coughing stopped suddenly
I tried to climb up and peep in
To check if you were alright
But I could not, I slipped and fell
So I just sent out a silent prayer
That you would sleep peacefully
And peacefully you did
But this time it was for good
Never to awaken again - Ofcourse
There would be no more pain
Not for you but I will suffer
From the acute pain of rejection
And the loss of you forever
You cut me off from your life
When I objected to your friends
Your life style, the drugs the fags
However, as your Mother I kept trying
To help you, but always ended up crying
And today is no exception, as I leave
To attend your funeral to say
My final goodbye, I know my tears
Will never dry - I am still not sure
If there was anything I could have done
To save you from that terrible end
