Its rare that a piece will touch me in such a profound way, and the following words are one of those times. Upon first reading, it reached in and grabbed my heart in its fist, squeezing it. As a mother, it nearly destroyed me. I give you Alone, by Dave Web, Dark One
Where has my mother gone?
I look for her here, I look for her there
I shout her name and still she doesn’t come….
Can she hear me, I wonder?
Or is this just her little game?
I cry sometimes as I look for her.
Is she looking for me and can’t find me?
I stand still and don’t move in hopes that she will see me.
Maybe she’s far away?
Maybe she left me, but what have I done?
Mama, if I upset you please forgive me,
But what did I do to make you leave?
I want you back, please come back
I pray to god, but no answer there.
I feel so lost, so empty inside
No one here no one by my side or hold my hand too tight.
No one there, does anyone care?
I stand here each day and look up and down the road
In hopes that she’ll come back and come home
No one ever comes.
I know now I’m all alone,
But each day I live in hope that she will return,
That she will once again, when the night comes, tuck me into bed
And tell me she loves me,
And that she will never leave again.
