Daughter

I watch you
Carefully
Looking for signs
Signs of sorrow
Signs of fear
Signs of lonliness
You hide them well

I listen to you
Silently
Looking for words
Words to say “Give it time”
Words to say “It will pass”
Words to say “I love you”
They stick in my throat

My heart beats
Fitfully
Looking for strength
Strength to give
Strength to share
Strength to let go
It isn’t working

Take from me
Experience
Hope
Love
Trust
Promise
I wish I had more.
