Breaking the Circle !

Post  Sue McDonald on Wed Dec 21 2011, 06:57

Today I heard your heartbreak, saw the tears in your eyes
saw the face of disappointment, as you were told more lies
Your gentle manor mild, that you were taught from a young child
helped you keep sweet composure, now just need to find some closure.

We need to work together, WE know whats right from wrong
we know we have done nothing wrong, no matter whats been said
we've been there for her always, given of ourselves so much
at the end recieve a phonecall, saying no longer stay in touch.

The threats they may keep coming, the pain eventually go
the memories are the hardest, they sometimes never leave
just hang on to the good ones, memory tears on your sleeve
know the love, I have for you, unconditionally continues to grow.

The circle must be broken, this must not carry on
life doesn't need this cruelty, we're of this earth not long
we'll repair our broken hearts, yes mine has been there too
I also have had hurtfull words, though sweetheart, we'll come through

Tomorrow is a new day, we'll shake away the pain
there's so much to be learnt from this, we have so much to gain
NO MORE looking back, or even wondering why,
we did our best, feathered her nest, I have no more to cry !!

Give me your heart thats broken, let me help remove the tears
throw away all disappointment, disolve the scars of lies
What we have is so special and I have it with the boys
A love thats true and special with no nasty games or ploys.

I wish I had what we have, now know that couldn't be
guess that sometimes happens when you look at family trees !!
Be happy and be proud of the family you've created, of the special
bond you have with your brothers, loved not hated.

You know what I've been through and haven't turned your back
stood there strong defending, under pressure and attack
I'm proud of our ''little family'' it's values love and strength
Will do all I can to protect us, YES...I'll go to any lengths !!

Why is it that family can be the hardest on our heart? I think because we are so close and vulnerable. I have one in the wings too Sue . . . after so much time he can't give up the past. Very hard to not let it effect you, so space is the very best plan for a peaceful night's sleep.

Great cathartic writing Sue. Hugs, and walk away from the hurt . . ..

It's hard when families have internal problems, your poem comes from the heart and its a very good piece of writing. Well done.
