What evil disease is this, that would
steal the recognition of a loving daughter from her darling mother’s mind?
With love so strong and infinite, how could
a devoted mother suddenly go so far beyond, leaving a part of her heart behind?
So often you look right through me
as though I’m not here.
And as I wonder when you will again see me,
I become paralyzed with fear.
Each time you look right through me,
a jagged knife plunges into my already shattered heart
because although we’re together, we
couldn’t be further apart.
Although you look right through me
not knowing who I am, I will never forget you
or all that you have done for me.
And I will do everything I can to help you.
Whenever you look right through me,
please know that right here I plan to remain.
Forever by your side I promise I will be,
trying desperately to reunite us once again.
But the truth is – every time you look right through me,
another huge part of me dies.
Forever lost in eternity.
Unseen, like my unheard cries.
