It Was Easy

It was easy to know…
An ever ready hug
A sticky candied kiss
A sweet clinginess
Eyes full of admiration
Songs full of love
A call for help meant only for one
Arms outstretched always wanting
It was easy to know

It was easy to show…
A wake up call to a favorite breakfast
A new frilly dress
Special occasion celebration
Treat upon treats
A longed for whined for gift delivered
Story time snuggles
Game time giddiness
Attention undivided
Every little need provided
It was easy to show

Yes, it was easy to know she loved me
Yes, it was easy to show I loved her
My daughter, my life
It was easy to know....easy to show

Why is it so hard now?
Refocusing on present realities
New forms
New expressions
New words
I struggle to find new ways
The old ones are worn out
All that’s left now is doubt

It’s hard to show…
It’s hard to know…
Am I still valued in her eyes?
Why does the passage of time make it so hard?
Why?
Isn’t love timeless?

Impactful poem, one of the reasons I used to want my kids to stay kids. I know growing up, I went through a stage similar to this. As I grew older though, I either started to feel the love for my parents more, or I actually starting to love them more. I think most of this phenomenon is due to various spiritual factors.

This is so beautiful Eileen. You brought a tear to my eyes. I'm sure the pic is you and beautiful daughter. I could feel your love in every word. Nancy

Such a heartfelt write, Eileen, and I can truly relate to this regarding my grown children, too! Yes, the love is still there, but they have become more complicated and so we show our love differently..they still need it desperately (I believe!) Hugs from Laura :)

Yes it is timeless and still they need to separate. It’s an important part of maturing and growing. When she has children of her own, you will experience a resurgence within your relationship. You will also find those old things are not so worn out after all. Hugs Rick.

..they still call...share a little secret...tap on a past moment....leave a poignant invitation......to love them....

As children grow, the way they show their love is different and sometimes rare, but don't worry, she still loves you, Eileen:)
