even the rogue child is loved

I was the child

that made you old,

I was also the girl

that couldn't be told


I was a rogue wave

and couldnt 
see 'now,'

that was I 

I'll never know how


when you went 

without word or a 

I was forever bereft

we didn't get a 


over time I've 

my pictures in 

I cried out my heart

in the differing 


I wish I could 

and saddle a star

and fly to your side

but your so very far


I dream 

in the depths of 
the night,

some seem so real

that we start to 


but as in the 

that walked this 

forgiveness was 

from the time of 
my birth


on a stone tablet

that I've hung on 
my heart

I etch in your name

each time it 
crumbles apart


of the,


four thousand 
eight hundred

and fifty three 

I cannot count 
every tear

I've shed as I 


now I celebrate the 

you lived without 

as I smooth out 
this page

I feel a presense is 


I am writing a

its for you with a

life wasnt for 

in mantles of 

your spirit is caught


burning through 

your memory shall 

I am the poetess

writing a shrine


for a mother who 

ever, gave up on 

I will bleed every 

till my veins have 
run free

    WOW Jayne - This is so heartbreaking, beautiful and SO elegantly written...Favorite verse among many: 'on a stone tablet that I've hung on my heart I etch in your name each time it crumbles apart' as well as the last two lines. You're one of a kind...

    Oh Jayne! What expressive beauty in these heartfelt and passionate words to a mother you held and still hold dear to your heart. The feeling of void is balanced by love. Truly, an apt canto to her memory. I am touched. take care. /x/ paul

    Hi Jayne, this is such a beautiful expressive dedication to your mother. I am sure that she loved you with all her soul and is proud of you. I am the mother of a "Rogue Child" and while we have been through a lot, I will never give up on him. I hope he feels for me the same way you feel about your mom. Best wishes and well done with this great write.
