To Much Pain (For My Daughter That Came Home) - Poem by Living Experience

It seems we've come to a crossroads,
A long one to repair,
I never meant to hurt you,
Or cause you much despair.

It seems that Ive been waiting,
For a child thats no more,
Every time I try to love you,
You slam the open door.

Its not the lessons learnt,
That causes me to retreat,
Its the ones you choose not to learn,
Thats makes me feel defeat.

You may think I don't love you,
Your wrong to feel that way,
For all those years I lost you,
My heart it bled each day.

These emotions that I feel,
Are unfamiliar to you,
Because you can't empathize,
In anything you do.

I know its hard to see,
Or feel this kind of love,
But it hurts me so deeply,
With our constant push and shove.

I have to put some distance,
Between my heart and yours,
For I too am hurting,
And these feelings I can't ignore.

But in your quiet moments,
When you've set your self apart,
Know that I am waiting,
For you to touch my heart.

In my head I hear,
The song we only share,
For there is a Storm outside,
That won't pass until we care.

Take with you my love,
Try not to feel despair,
Just know that I am waiting,
For you to meet me there.

    I am sorry for what you going through, I could read your feeling, emotions clearly.. maybe if she sees this she could feel it too... It's hard, real hard to see your own baby going away from you.. God is by your side, someday she will also be there holding you(Amen) .... take care.. Keep writing, you are a good writer.. :) (Report) Reply
