I walked past your room but couldn稚 bring myself to open the door Not having you here is a feeling that leaves me aching to the core Tonight no one will call that they need another drink or to hear a song This house feels so empty...because you aren稚 where you belong
In front of you I値l smile and tell you to be good and have a great time As I turn to go...I知 careful that no one sees these tears of mine Your sweet little hug and kiss are kept safe in my heart and memory Where no one can touch them....or take them from me
I pray tonight on bent knee that you know how much I love you How much I wish that I could always be there to protect you Adult decisions impact you the hardest of all...the ones without a choice But baby please believe...I値l listen hardest of all to that little voice
I'll try tonight to fall into the darkness of sleep So I can hold and see you as you pray the Lord your soul to keep Walking past your door, I see him there...feeling lost and lonely too... Tears fall as I pick up the teddy that smells just like you
Butterflies--I have been in this situation that you have written of with your mother's heart...I think somehow children have resillience that we don't expect and may fair better then their parents...especially when both parents show how much they love them. Hugs to you for this tender and love filled poem!
But baby please believe...I値l listen hardest of all to that little voice ========================

Oh Butterflies ... you're pulling my heart strings this morning. What an emotional read. I watched my sister go through these emotions, and talked to her on the phone endlessly as she cried that first night. Hugs to you for writing with such impact and intensity ... I'm sure they know how deeply you love them ...
Best wishes, /Kit
Oh, my baby, I cry and ache with you. I can hold you in my heart and dreams and do the same for the little ones. The best is yet to come and God can hear our silent screams. We all wil make it through this. Love and hugs, my kid. Mom
I知 careful that no one sees these tears of mine Adult decisions impact you the hardest of all...the ones without a choice ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BDC, my dear poetfriend, this is an emotionally touching write that spears into my heart as the tears fall from eyes...

BDC~ I kept going past this one.......knowing it would evoke strong emotions in me....( make me cry like a baby) and of course, it did.......I think I'd go insane, having to do this. Thank God, I don't. My heart goes out to you. -SEA
