A Mother's Longing

by Sherry Lynn   Apr 28, 2008


Why must these feelings continue
Unable to do anything; helpless
Loving you more than life
Yet, unable to cure your illness

My life would be freely given
Merely for you to find happiness
Delirium visions with mirage demons
No longer would haunt your innocence

Medication, physicians; even therapist
Daily existence no longer experienced
Freed from agonizing mental torture
Living life filled with cheerfulness

**My 13 year old suffers with Bi-polar. This poem is in regards to him and his illness. ***

    It must have been difficult to write this sherry... finding your way to express your suffering of every minute, every moment and your kiddie too... You emoted this so well, it had tears in my eyes... A mother longs for her kid to be cured and the emotions delved every moment to yearn for their betterment is just difficult to express.... You have laid this poem very well....

    It is a very good sad but heartfelt poem. The wording was great and described some of the effects of being Bi-polar nicely. It is a good length and it flowed ok from beginning to end. I see nothing that needs to be worked on. I think that the 2nd stanza was my favorite.

    gave it a 5/5

    Brought tears to my eyes..
    but let me clear something out.
    It was not your sons illness that touched my heart, not the things he had to go through.Cause as a believer I know God never gives us a burden that we can't handle. ..so as it has been said BE proud God think you can do it!

    U have no idea how much..how deep poetry about family..touch me ..for thats the kind of care I lack..tho have!/

    What touched me..was ur endless love..r care..the mother instinct that's deeply found in u.
    Ready to sacrifice your own happiness and rest for your son.
    Not only did u word this in a very touchy amazing way.
    reflecting yearnings oof a mother who wants to kiss her sons pain away.
    BUT u also proved that eeven in his illness...you have given your son a treasure..that illness it self can't take it away from him.

    5/5
    proud to read your work
