    So long I sit and wait on you to come
    to me and bare all your infirmities
    I wait patiently to know
    The pain you feel
    I want to understand
    What is happening to the man
    That I watched grow
    To know what caused you to be this new being I never knew
    Its brand new and I cant take seeing
    this shadow over you
    When you decide to come to me
    Know that I will be waiting

    So long these eighteen years
    that my baby has kept things from me
    given no trust to me
    Now you threaten to leave me
    So long I wonder what happened
    To the you I used to know
    The boy I watched grow
    Who is now a man with no real plan for a future it seems
    That you have lost all of your dreams
    So come back to me
    And I will show you the way
    SO long are these words I have waited to say
    These are the words of a mother to a son who
    Has drifted away

    Very Nice.

    Regardless of what he doesn't share or tell. Always share what you know about life. Share you experience. Share your mind.

    Plan to work. Work to plan. Is in the heart of every woman and man.
    Wear the mask of hope and smile. Focus on the blessings you do have. Your given another day to strive. To see the sun to be alive.

    It is hard for a man to relay his dispair. To share with anyone that this world is not fair. It seems like failure no matter the course. To share to him it makes it worse. He must understand we can't make it alone. Sharing is part of how to keep on going. Head up young man, keep your feet in stride. This journey this venture the life long ride. The road is paved with those who quit. Whose soul died but the heart must stay lit. Tomorrow is another chance, to change the way you view the way. Keep on keeping on.

    To lose touch with the same being that you carried for 9 months...heartbreaking. I felt this piece poet, and so nice to read something new from you.

    Just as a clarification I don't have a child at all I think some of my readers think I do. that isn't the case I just wrote this from a mother's perspective that's all. THANK YOU to those who peeped outt his piece I appreciate the love.
