A MOTHER'S TEARS

She watched her daughter
Sitting on a chair
The child’s thoughts
She didn’t know where
Off in a dream
Or perhaps a nightmare
Her daughter never smiles
Not really ever there
No eye contact is made
She looks straight ahead
Impossible for the mother
To even touch her head
Often she’ll scream
Her mother doesn’t know why
She doesn’t want to be comforted
She just continues to cry
What can a mother do
To the doctor they go
Medication taken
The child continues to grow
Mentally hurting
No one but her mom cares
Tries to get help
From everywhere
The problem they say is simple
It’s Autism
To get her child help
That is her mission
Every once in a while
There’s a glimmer of light
But it burns out quickly
Completely out of sight
A Mother’s Tears
Wanting just one kiss
How can this poor child
Go on and exist
The mother is strong
Works every day
To get her daughter
To want to play
One day out of the blue
She walks into the room
Holds onto her mom
And over is the gloom
It is short-lived
She walks away
Her mother continues to prays
Hoping for help one day
Autism…A MOTHER’S TEARS
