Hurting Poem

Poem From Mother To Daughter

I wrote my poem after going through a tough relationship with my daughter and her boyfriend. I found a great deal of comfort in writing my thoughts into little poems that helped us all through the tough times.

Your Relationship Is Broken

© Lynn
In the midst of a sentence I felt it!
It hit me, a gut feeling things weren't quite right.
The love I had come to know had changed.
It faded as if slowly dying.
I ask myself what is this, why is it happening to us?
We were perfect, compatible, uniquely in love with our life.
Something was changing.
It had all changed.
Everything was different.
I looked on the floor, and in front of me lie, a million little pieces, covered in memories.
My heart ripped from my chest.
It lie on the ground in a million pieces.
My life was shattered.
What do I do with these pieces,
How do I pick them all up?
I dropped to my knees picked them up, one by one, piece by piece.
I was taking the first step in getting my life back.
I realized the person I still loved with all my heart was symbolized in all the tiny pieces.
I sat down and put them all back together again.
I had the answer.

  • I had to live all my life knowing that my mom wished she had an abortion. Everyday of my life I cry asking God why is my life like this and it feels like God is just not listening to me. Well I sometimes feel that I'm the only one living this kind of life. This is my home life. Then there is my boyfriend gosh he never makes my life easy. Cheats on me, hardly tells me that he loves me. I sometimes think that this is not love. The thing is I love him and I find love very difficult if I let go of him. It's funny how I laugh and hide my tears and how wonderful people think my life is. The inner me died 3 years ago. Now I just live for the fact of living.

  • When people see me...they see a perfect life because of the smile I always wear...but under that smile is a heartbroken and shattered young girl. I have been hurt so many times by guys and have been made to feel useless. I met this guy who made me feel like a princess, I felt safe in his arms and when he said I love you...my world just lit up. That went on for long until he started calling other girls baby and doing things in front of me...he eventually left me for someone who looks like a potato. From now on I don't think I am able to show love to anyone...not even my best friend.

  • My daughter and I were extremely close. The night before she left for college, she asked me to climb in bed with her and just hold her. Our deep closeness lasted after her marriage to a wonderful man, the birth of 3 beautiful children. But things changed when she came into a multi million dollar inheritance she was to share evenly with her father. She changed towards me. I have not seen my grandchildren in a year and a half. They used to call me and send me pictures they drew. I haven't talked to them for over 2 years. I find cards from daughter, written over her lifetime saying how much she loved me. How I was the nicest person she ever knew. This parting has destroyed me. I have lots of friends and am involved in activities, but nothing can lighten my pain. I don't spend the rest of my life with this broke heart. I do tell myself that the most important thing is my grandchildren have so much love and attention from their parents.
