Although the name of this blog might give the impression it will be filled with positive and calming reading the reader may find this is not always the case. I make no apologies for this.

I believe experiencing the whole range of emotions, both those considered negative and those considered to be positive are a big part in what makes us human.
Acknowledging and expressing those feelings in an appropriate way makes us healthy humans.
You will find the gamut of emotions expressed in my works on this blog. I hope they encourage the reader to acknowledge their own feelings both positive and negative.

Mother where are you? ...

Mother where are you?

Mother where are you?
Why did you leave me so?
I’ll never understand
Why you had to go
Though grown I still
Shed angry tears
Where were you?
Through my growing years
I was a child and I needed you
To calm my childish fears
Forgiveness comes easily
From my loving heart
But I’ll never forget
You left us
It left a permanent wound
And deeply scarred our hearts

  4. Thanks Lynne my writing has been so healing for me.

  5. This is beautiful. My dad left home when I was small and he has asked forgiveness for not being there. I had already forgiven him, but I have created room in my life for us to be reconnected, to know each other again as adults. Perhaps, one day this will happen for you too. If not, her loss. I forgave my dad for my sake. It was hard to do but you sound like you have worked that one out and I say "good for you" and I am proud of you.
