Manchild

.

oh what have i done?
my sensitive son


i tried to reach your hidden heart
when he did leave, we came apart,
and yet i loved you,. saw your loss
.but could not heal
our broken hearts.

and in my grief, and in your rage
we lost our story, on the page
i floundered weary,then you fled
into a new world
. how we bled

..how do i make up for those years
.when we retreated  in our tears
..and seeing you, i know this well
you have a deep and secret well


i cannot laugh, that all is welll.
our lives were broken from that spell
.but now we see, the light of day
.a peaceful heart, for you i pray

beautiful and heart felt

thank you

Oh what a dilemma, such a painful time for you both .. you must in no way blame yourself for doing absolutely the right thing at the time, unfortunately we can't always protect our kids from life's painful experiences and now with age and maturity there will come a new understanding which will bring you even closer together than it might of brought before .. a very moving piece of writing, you capture so much with a few thoughtful verses .. (((hugs)))

thankyou tink, even though it was 12 years ago, we both still have scars, but we are getting there!

Sigh.

Insightful of your child and your relationship.....it's beautiful.

i could only have one child..he is so beautiful

That's poignant and beautiful shenightowl..but sad.

thank you, we are wonderful friends, but i feel he was very hurt when his father left, and i didn't cope too well,,but it's all good
