Good News

My news for you
On this morning’s dew
Reality is, I understand
They didn’t offer you love
Did they?
You weren’t given the chance
Were you?
Did they leave
Work too much
Forget you existed
Left you on the side of the street
Those are all possibilities
I’m here
I’ve been there
Not to each place
Probably not yours
Yet, I understand
Feelings of abandonment
Each one of ours different
Can you allow me to remind
They may have never offered
But somewhere inside
They love you
Somehow they do
You felt it inside
Or you wouldn’t be here
You’re not dead
You’re alive
Don’t discount them
Over three words
Although not uttered
Maybe felt instead
By the most primal of sorts
If your pain is found in a deeper well
I’ll simply hold you
If you’d like just sit near
Please listen
Bring all of you
Come closer
I love you to pieces
I adore your soul
You are beautiful
You may not know what to do
Or where to go
Rest assured
He loves us
I’m here
I choose to care
I love you

  1. Wow Audrey, this one is really touching. It makes me think of what so many children now-a-day experience. Not having the attention they should have from the ones that are meant to show love, affection, teach responsibility, be examples to learn from. A ton of tiny little broken hearts all over this world. And a ton of parents that don’t know how to give that or are forced by society to run after things that are of lesser value than their kids.

    • You’re too kind Audrey. Thank you. What type of work with children do you do? I agree, it’s definitely not for the weak. I watched a music video on Youtube of a little girl driving away in a car with her mom. They were leaving her dad and she looked so sad. She would see other families drive by and couples together and all. Anyhow, it made me cry. And that’s just one story of divorce. So many more stories and far greater intensity out there.

    Wow…this is in my opinion one of Audrey’s best but who am I? It sings without the notes!!! I love it! I hope you love it too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Gosh… Have a great day!

  3. Audrey! WOW! You have written some really great pieces but this is too much—it’s great! Wow! Could this be the best? Hmmmmm. Maybe. And, it is just the right amount if that makes sense…not too short…and not too long…just perfect. Take care and have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wow! …..

  4. a truly beautiful piece of art you have there, just a suggestion though, maybe try and use more punctuations so the reader can easily identify a clear tone. It is still a very heartwarming piece nonetheless ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much. I’m glad you enjoyed this piece. I have often thought about punctuation. I usually don’t use it at all. I am not sure why I did at all in this one. Do you prefer punctuations in your poems. Why? I’m open to discussion. I’m fairly new at sharing my poetry and appreciate the feedback. Thanks! Oh, and Hi, I’m Audrey.

Tell Me, Please...
