Her Story

Mother’s heart cries out for son
Wounded, broken, unsure what she’s done
Son’s heart wondered astray
Hopes, dreams wrecked along the way

Reflective memories of days gone by
Bring tears of joy to Mother’s eyes
Smiles and laughter replaced by sadness and pain
Mother clings to hope; one day son’s heart will change

Calloused scales now cover his eyes
Preventing clear vision and enabling lies
Mother’s love from heart so chaste
Hurdles fear, refuses to quit the race

Milestones pass, communications lapse
Days of celebration now moments of frustration
Soft sighs escape, thoughts unbidden
Mother patiently seeks emergence
Of relationship currently forbidden
