Sad Eyes

By    

Hopeless and still
Eyes of a mother
Who is so in love with her child
Gazes into a face full of promise
Hopeful but lacking smiles

Sadness hangs so closely
Defeating a mother’s dreams and aspirations
Depleting sacrifices made before labor
Leaving a shadow of lost dreams
Taken away easily without warning
Drawing a trail made of tears
Rethinking decisions made before this shero lost her cape
Someone inside of her whispered words of change
Debating to leave her child permanently
Or offer him a better life
Dying from the thoughts of failing her child

Eyes of a mother
Who is so in love with her child
Gazes into a face full of promise
Hopeful but lacking smiles
