**repost for a friend by request.
Its been way over a year, since I've heard anything from you,
do you ever wonder how I am...or what I'm going thru.
Its been even longer since you actually laid eyes on me,
Out of sight and out of mind is the way it seems to be.
Why is it so damn easy for you to just simply walk away,
thru the years you've improved this game, denial is the card you always play.
How does one just erase years of the ties that bind,
how do you justify... your leaving this all behind.
I'll no longer make an effort or excuses for you,
someday you will be alone, then what will you do.
I rarely think about you, very much anymore...
I guess that means my heart has started closing doors.
You made your own choices, I'm not in your plans,
can anyone explain it to me...to make me understand.
How can you completely pretend I was never here...
I've asked some really good questions...
could you please answer me ... "mother dear".

I reposted this old one from Dark Passions after a conversation with a friend last night who was dreading this holiday because of the pain it brings her.
Not all mothers live up to the image we have of them...for what ever the reasons...
it causes years of pain.
I post this not for "sympathy" or to bring anyone down ...
but to let anyone feeling this way to know there are many others out there...who understand.
I like to call it "quiet comfort" *smile*
thank you to my friend for allowing my words to touch you.
take care, jm
