A LETTER TO MY ONLY DAUGHTER

Dear Sharon, I know you miss your mum Just like you have more unanswered questions than answers When you're alone in solitary, you often sit silently, soberly and wonder Why you never had a mother or felt a mother's love Why you feel so lonely even when you're not alone, But it seems you're having an alone time in the midst of a crowd Why you can't blend in with the kids in the 'hood Cause of the ridicule you face from neighbours in the neighbourhood. I know you're scared, mummy isn't here, wipe your tears Daddy is here even in your painful prayers and frightening nightmares
