He Is Much Too Young


Maureen White

He is much too young
Or so, I thought
To look at me with such
Each time I see
His eyes, I grieve
For this child who has
turned the page
on everything he
believed in....
Trust, promises and
anything with a guarantee.
He doesn't care to be
righteous, but then
He knows exactly what
It's done to me.
I have become contemptible
Someone to loathe for not
being, "God."
Everything I was
to him died that day
and I became nothing more
than a facade
Someone to punish
for being the one
who loved him hardest
and the one he loved best
and yet now, somehow cannot
abide the love...
for at this moment
my child's heart
needs rest.
