You walked away from me and left a hole in my heart.
In filling it up, I hardly know where to start.
I thought we spoke the truth, one to the other,
As seemed to be the way between grown child and mother.
Now, you've turned away. Will you be returning?
A joyful reunion is that for which I'm yearning.
But, I fear that you'll want us to replace each other.
Have you decided that you don't want or need a mother?
I cannot ever be simply your peer group friend;
There have been too many paths I've followed to the end.
I've gained much wisdom on my journey that I'd like to share.
Please remember in your walk through life how much I still care.
