A MOTHER WAITS (c) By Polly Guerin

Sleeping Woman by Tamara deLempika

How can a mother forgive a broken heart?

There’s so much hurt it’s hard to start

Waiting, waiting, her daughter/son never called

They picked up the phone but were stalled

A phone call would have brightened her day
So many disappointments she dared not say

All that is left are tokens in a keepsake box
Mementos she treasured are there locked

She recalls the joy of their angelic faces
But they’ve moved on there’s no traces

Alone in the silence a mother dreams
Recalling the child in that halcyon scene.
