The Listen

Listening to that old track really takes me back
To dropping my son at day care those days.
Listening to the same CD, 18 years ago today.

How troubled and sad I felt, brushing tears away.
And his tears too on being dropped off there
After mommy and daddy went their way.

His lonely eyes ripped out my heart that day
My own tears of shame as I drove away.
I couldn't let him or anyone else see.

You said he'd be fine, no scars would there be.
But I know you lied. I still see his eyes.
I watched him change as you unmade our lives.

Oh, God knows how we since tried to survive.
How we tried to make things work and please.
But you lied, honey, you lied. He and I still cry.

We cry so very deep inside now its hard to say why.
But never, ever have we found what we needed,
The forgiveness, peace, or love inside of you.

Many things we've done, to people we've been true.
I'm still driving that damn road and I know so is he.
So, this song still sounds the same when I listen.

No matter how old I get, sometimes I still feel smitten.
My life all but spent, now I worry much about his.
I hope for his sake, he's let go, and forgets to listen.

I'm really glad I decided to read this one. What a moving poem. I think I would just be repeating everyone else if I told you how I felt about it. I can't do it justice. This is incredible.

Now you have me crying.... It's a shame they don't come with a set of schematics so you can know what will scar them and what won't...before they're broken....

No one can really know what goes on in the mind of a child...we often think they don't hear and see...but they don't miss a thing.
Great, sad write, my friend...
Hugs to help you feel better...

It's difficult to let go when your older. But next to impossible to forget when you are younger. I hope one day you and your son find the peace you seek..! Excellent write my friend..!
