Love Un-said

For all I haven't done or said,
For all these thoughts left in my head,
I'm left with tears that never end
because now you're gone;
My daughter.  My friend.
With a loving hug
and a rushed good-bye
you shut the door,
and now here I cry.
I rest my head
because I feel so weak.
I pray it's a dream,
but I dear not peek.
I take a deep breath
to subside this pain,
but it just gives me strength
to cry again.
Good-byes are hard,
but you had to go.
You need your space
so you can grow.
I gather the strength
from within to smile,
because I know I'll see you
in a little while.

Oh this is so sweet. It would be hard for me to leave if my mom wrote something so special about me.

I wrote this poem to my daughter when she was leaving home to move to Florida. It was the hardest thing I did, letting her go.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
