When I Can't

I stand on the edge of his world…
and when Im not standing, Im kneeling.
I look and I see the choices he makes…
and I find myself prayerful and pleading.
He knows what he does is wrong…
he was raised to do what is right.
But more often then not lately…
it seems he has somehow lost sight.
My hands might as well be bound up…
for they can’t fix what he will break…
My words will not be worth the speaking…
in these decisions that he now makes.
It hurts so much to love as a Mother does…
her child’s wellbeing taken from her hand.
The only solace for this Mother’s fearful heart…
Is that God will be there when I can’t.
