Mom, can you see me?
Can you hear my cries?
Are you now in heaven
Has your own pain died?

Mom, can you hear me?
My child, she is hurting
I have caused her the same pain
That I had grown up with.

Mom,, Do you know
That I do not blame you?
I just wanted you to listen
To know how I was hurting..

I still tried, Mom
until the day you had died
To be worthy of your love
that you kept locked up inside.

You couldn't hear me then
You couldn't listen
Can you hear me now mom?
Are you able to listen?

The need never died mom,
Nor did the pain
I search through my memory
back through my life

for one single time mom,
That you may have held me?
Or showed me you loved me.
searching for comfort

Can you hear me now mom?
Can you see, I'm crying?
I followed your path mom
The same one you walked on.

I have hurt my own child mom
The same way that you did
She's grown now, a woman
Robbed of her childhood.

She seeks my love, mom.
the same way that I did,
While you were still living
But I mom,, I have heard her..

This has to stop happening
Can you see me down here?
Are you proud of me yet mom?
From that safe place your hiding?

I still seek your love mom,
I know I won't feel it..
But I won't allow this
To happen to my daughter..

You were all that I had mom.
My mother, my father
My life revolved around you
I tried hard to please you

I could never understand mom
What I had needed to do..
For you to love me
To feel I belonged here

Now it's to late
I'll never know
The pain needs to stop mom
The chain now is breaking

I can help my child mom
I can now show her my love
So she'll not be left here
Alone, when I am gone

She'll know she was loved
Have the strength to go on
She'll have her own children
And their childhoods...

Mom can you hear me?
From your place far away?
I still want you to love me.
Even still to this day.

A second poem, in Breaking Chains
Buried pains, unknown reemerging.
Perhaps in order to save another, our own pains,
desires..sit back and "Wait"..Until the job is done..
Thinking all the while they are gone..settled..that you have gone past "All that"..
I don't know the answer..This piece is not a poetic
masterpiece by far..It seems almost child like in style to me, looking at it now..But perhaps the part of me that penned it, is that hurt child..
There is more growing to do, more to learn, and more healing to be done..

Oh my, this is sooooo very touching and heartfelt. Some of the words you just took from my mouth. I can feel your pain, except my mom is my own mother and she's still living and I did the same thing to please her all my life.

Wow, this is makes me want to cry. Thank God my mom and I are on better terms now. She is such a lovely person now.

But I'm so moved by the words here, my tears starts flowing when I hear your inner pain, almost pararel to mine.

Take care!!!!!

Dearest Jen,

First off let me say that YOU are very brave. I know this is hard, as hard as anything that I've written. I also want to say that the child-like voice is exactly what makes this poem good. I hate to say something like, it's heart-felt but it is. It's great. Another thing, yes she does hear you. The after-life is for learning as well.

(((HUGS))) to you my friend.
Love, Janet xoxoxo
