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 
cherished

I'll never know how

 

when you went 
away

without word or a 
sigh,

I was forever bereft

we didn't get a 
goodbye

 

over time I've 
painted

my pictures in 
words,

I cried out my heart

in the differing 
verbs

 

I wish I could 
harness

and saddle a star

and fly to your side

but your so very far

 

I dream 
conversations

in the depths of 
the night,

some seem so real

that we start to 
fight

 

but as in the 
wonder

that walked this 
earth,

forgiveness was 
quick

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 
days,

I cannot count 
every tear

I've shed as I 
swayed

 

now I celebrate the 
life

you lived without 
fear,

as I smooth out 
this page

I feel a presense is 
near

 

I am writing a 
canto

that goes on for 
miles

I wish you could 
read it

its for you with a 
smile

 

I write in your 
name

life wasnt for 
naught,

in mantles of 
flames

your spirit is caught

 

burning through 
history

your memory shall 
shine,

I am the poetess

writing a shrine

 

for a mother who 
never

ever, gave up on 
me

I will bleed every 
word

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.
