Mother And Daughter

by Sweet Disposition

Mothers and their daughters,
They share a special bond
A warm, loving connection
That for all these years I've longed

I've willed for her to cuddle me,
Like she used to do
But the cuddles ended years ago, why?
I never knew..

I came across a photograph,
It was about two weeks ago
I don't know what came over me,
But the tears began to flow

I stared down at the photograph,
And was touched by what I saw
The love and awe my face had shown,
Made the tears fall even more

I was gazing into my mothers eyes,
With a smile upon my face
I wondered when that smile had gone
It had left without a trace..

Now looking in the mirror,
I can see I'm not like her
That happy little face,
Has turned into just a blur

I hope that one day soon my
Happy face will re-appear
And that when my mother looks at me,
Her eyes won't well with fear

This brought tears to my eyes..

As I was reading this, I was thinking, how many people can relate to this..I know I can..

"I've Willed For Her To Cuddle Me,
Like She Used To Do
But The Cuddles Ended Years Ago, Why?
I Never Knew.."

^^ My favourite part of the poem, I found it to hold so much depth and power.

There is not a thing I would change about this, I loved all of it.

I'm glad you asked me to read some of your work, I have enjoyed your poems, and you're now on my favourites.

I liked the subject, as well as the tone of the piece. It was very genuine. Some of the lines I thought were a little awkward, like in the second stanza. I felt the'why' could've been put on the last line, and in the last stanza, I felt the 'my' could've began the second line. Apart from that, it was a great piece, with a good flow.
