  Hugged me and said she'll surely love again,

than she left with my old, worn-out  backpack.

We took her there when she was only ten,

she remembers our walks along the tracks,

and life's true stories that she helped me pen.

Thought someday she might very well go back,

cottage living was so wonderful then,

seems like our best times remained in the past.

Only three lovers since her high school days,

enough for quite the woman she became.

A unique heart she passionately gave,

seeing her go, heartbroken once again.

You think how much you love her as she waves,

wish you could be with her to heal the pain.

Don't we wish. Heartache is just as devastating the third as it was the first time, and still the fifth. All we can do is be there and love them. Touching poem. ML

It is not an easy thing to watch your children in pain.

Nicely written.

You captured the angst of the broken heart perfectly here Raymond, great writing.  Henry

I never knew the kind of love that I learned when my daughter was born....every tear, every owie, every shot, every cry hurts worse than anything that could happen to your body... I can't imagine what it must feel like to see your child hurting that badly and not be able to do a thing about it.  My heart goes out to you and your daughter.

Love, Rin

No matter that a break up could be a blessing in disguise, it still hurts.  Good write.

Bye the bye, don't take everything I write as fact, I like to use fiction in my poems to make my point. LOL

It's hard when we want the best for our children.  Love how you wrote of the 10 year old and how it ties into your poem of unconditonal love.

Wonderously beautiful Raymond (and I do not bullshit)
The loving protective heart of a father is something my children missed

Beautifully written, Raymond...

Watching our children suffer through heartaches and heartbreaks can be devastating...and we just want to make everything better for them.

Well done...Very well done!

Raymond-  Been there with my children.  Oh that you could banish  the mistakes from their lives that we also made; unfortunately we tend to learn best as a species, when we get "stung" by life's cruelties.  All we can do is (this seems so self-serving), unconditionally love them.     Bruce
