AM I WASTING MY TIME?
For quite a few years
I've waited in vain.
To get reunited with my family again.
I still don't know why
This situation I'm in.
They have not given me a reason.
I just can't seem to win.
The photo below was
The last time we were together.
Christmas 2009, since then,
Much stormy weather.
One of my grandsons'
Did phone me the other week.
But his dad has told him to stop.
To me that's a cheek.
The whole family are remembered
Throughout different occasion in the year,
But not a word of thanks from my kids
Of "I love you" and good cheer.
Am I wasting my time,
In thinking about the happy days in the past?
Not a day goes by
Hoping this situation can't last.
My eldest grandson will be 18 yrs
In just a few weeks.
I was hoping by then ,
They would have turned the other cheek.
Am I wasting my time,?
After all is said and done.
They are still my "Wonderful" daughter,
And a "Wonderful" son.
From a much saddened mother and grandmother:
