She Will Wait

A poem

Waiting patiently
For a glimpse of faith
An unseen empathy
She learns to wait

Each passing moon
A body grows tired
No mention of concern
Or signaled desire

Are you proud
Left to wonder
Where did I fail
For one day
Her mother may love her

Another new moon
Crafted wonder
Immeasurable void
Disregarded existence

Days grew to years
A decade lost
The numbing friend
She learned to accept

Love without return
A heart patiently burns
Forgiven void
Unlocked chains for one

A heart remains broken
With hope for her mother
Patiently waiting
Love was once there

If not for her daughter
Would anyone care
Three decades passed
Whispered despair
