My Mother's Tears

"I shall be telling this with a sigh." Robert Frost

When I see my mother cry
sometimes I wish I knew why

My mother cries sometime at night
Sometimes she cry just from fright

My mother cries sometimes when ill
The Lord knows her strenght is her will

She might be weak from time to time
She calls on the Lord for peace of mind

My mother cries when she feels pain
The Lord is her staff, strength she gains

Sometimes she cries like a weeping child
Then there are when her cries are very mild

I her my mother pray at night
Sometimes she pray with all her might

She thank the Lord for each new day
and pray for her troubles along the way

No matter the reasons why she cries
The Lord is with her
He is always by her side

Rosalyn M. Lampkin, October 21, 2011

    Perhaps she has depression. That can be scary for a child. Congratulation on your win. Love, Joyce

    Hello Joyce, thank you for commenting. The reality of this poem is my mother was never depressed at any point in her life. She lived a full and happy life (now deceased). As an adult and a mother as well, now I understand why my mom cried.
