Blissful Sadness

A Silhouette of Sadness

New mothering
brought me joy.
Blissful willingness
I gave of myself.
 
Nothing perturbed
or was too much
to tend to this babe
that I had birthed.


 
She was my first,
perfect and sweet,
a child of peace,
her soul so deep.
 
A bond grew tight
with her at my breast,
exchanging love,
trust, and light.
 
But you never called,
you didn’t reach out,
you kept yourself(ish)
hidden from our life.
 
Your granddaughter
was here…not so
far away, but you
made no attempt
to join with us.
 
I should have
been prepared,
because this is
who you are…
but it would have
been nice to have
felt your presence.
