IT'S A SUNDAY EVENING:

I was in a whistful mood
like the cat above:
I wrote this to my UK son.


              IT'S A SUNDAY EVENING:
It's a sunday evening,
The sun's about to set.
It's been nearly eight years(come Christmas)
Since we last met.

Much water has flowed beneath the bridge,
Since that Christmas Eve.
Alot of it not good,
I know that you will believe.

With tenacity and hope,
Things can change for the better.
For instance, speaking on the phone,
Instead of an email letter.

Then of course in due time,
Perhaps we could meet.
We've both changed in appearance I presume,
I'm an elderly lady now says I with defeat.

Please reply to my messages,
That's all I ask of you.
Don't leave me out of the family,
Whatever I did wrong I've paid through and through.

  1. I hope that the two of you can take steps to mend the hurt and move forward. Life is too short and the only thing that really matters in life are the people we love.

    1. I have my doubts Alex as he since told me of his surgery has not been answering any the of the emails. Plus the grandchildren have stopped texting me. Still one must live in HOPE.

  2. Big shame all around and many regrets could ensue. Folks are stubborn and that can be sad. Hope things thaw sometime soon. Your poem is very good

    1. All I want is a phone call at present that would be a start.
      An email is something anyone can write.
      Thanks for your kind words Susan.

  7. I think he should let you know what the problem is. Then you could work together to solve it. Praying for understanding and a renewal of your love for each other.
