So few Memories of you

This poem describes how I feel about my youngest son and daughter moving so far away to Arizona! It brings me back to the pain of when my son and daughter were kidnapped by their abusive dad. I must step away from the past and look into my heart and soul for the new adventurous me!

Childhood memories of you

Those childhood memories I have of you,
Forever locked in my heart are so precious and few
So much I have missed of your childhood days
Drowned out by terror and lost in an elusive haze


You were taken from me when just a small child
The intensity of the pain makes me feel immensely defiled
The playful little child haunts my dreams as I awaken crying
Feelings of loss and gloom encompass me as my soul is dying

All grown up

Today you are all grown and though I am so proud,
the loss of those tender years hovers over me like a cloud
It cuts like a knife as history repeated itself when you took my granddaughter so far away
Who is that little one in my dreams; is it you or is it her, I cannot say?

Leaving on a jet plane

My heart does not know the difference because all it knows is the pain
When will this heart ache of separation come to an end?
It will end as I buy my one way ticket on that jet plane
Someday I will leave everyone and everything to unite with you once again.

My adventurous spirit

I will make it on my own and you will be proud of me someday
At least this time no one can take you or her away.
I will find that adventurous spirit deep inside of me
And become all that I was created to be!

Love, Mom

Below is the song that my children inspired me to write.

hon, if you go off there you will be lonesome for your other children. It is unfortunate that they all can't be together

Touching feelings that I can well relate to dear Judy.

It is not easy to let go - a child is a child, especially to mother, whatever be the age. One has an empty feeling when being away from our children however much we try to fill the void - siva

This is among good share my fried. I can almost feel your pain as I read it. In this day and age families rarely live in the same part of the country or the world. I hope that you will be able to spent time with all of your family. There is nothing like a mother's love. Blessings.
