Mother in the shadows

Mother in the shadows
I know your son…
His screams can be heard in the night,
those swollen tears have covered his face.
Bathing him with only pain and fear.

Mother in the shadows
I know your son…
The boy you wanted so much,
Yet left alone to find his way in the woods.
Did you secretly desire the wolves to eat him?
Was his need of you too great?

Mother in the shadows
I know your son…
He holds regret to his heart..
I fear he is falling apart
Yet my glue filled hands are not enough.
Where are you?

Mother in the shadows…
I know your son…
How could you do this to a child born with the need of love?
It amazes me he knows love in his heart,
Perhaps his yurn for it and the fairy tales made it possible…

Mother in the shadows,
I know your son.
I love him,I need him…
god pray I am enough to heal the wounds
