A Mother's Love is Unending...isn't it?

When I was younger I imagined you would never meet your grandchildren
Forgive my honesty, I just didn't think you had it in you
Growing up hearing, "I never wanted kids" sets up quite a disappointing example
I expected blantant disregard and disinterest
Opinions I would disagree with
Hushed conversations with my husband on the way to holidays
Instead you are a train coming off the tracks sending debris flying
Screams are echoing in my head
Oh wait...
Those are my screams
I am screaming, begging, for anything more then what I have now
Christmas is the holiday for family they say
Why have you never listened to them?
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud to see such loneliness?
I am lonely without you
I am half an orphan
Only now do I realize it's been that way for years
Let your hate spread like wildfire
Burning everything it touches
Sucking life from the air
Until it is you staring at a white ceiling why I don't love YOU anymore
