Maternally Yours

Sorrowful kisses placed on a tearful cheek

flushed with pain and sadness


Comforting arms embrace a quivering body

left shaking with fear and loneliness


Sympathetic words caress throbbing ears

as the cries of heartache echo within


Gentle hands wipe weeping eyes

that no longer behold the beauty of ones self-worth


A hopeful smile given to a once laughing face

which now only frowns with despair and confusion


Understanding silence given to impart empathy and love

as only a mother can do


to mend a daughter’s first heartbreak.
