For Mother

    For Mother

    There in the cradle the child lies
    Desperate for mother's affection
    Mother is in the corner, cowering from the cries
    Afraid of her child's rejection
    Upon cold cheeks these tears do fall
    The scars they run too deep
    A mother who could not give her all
    To a child she did not want to keep
    Now in the mirror, she looks but can not see
    The reality of her reflection
    Baby in the cradle, that child is me
    Desperate for my mother's attention

    definately some true to heart feelings and emotions went into this one!

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
