A Bleeding Heart

You have been long gone,
resting in Earth’s lap
I am all alone. 
Not a moment lived
without missing you.

I hear you call me,
my eyes search for you.
I end up dismayed
As it is not you,
it’s the voice within.

I am still alive 
For, I am breathing. 
It’s not oxygen
It’s your memories 
which keep me going

I am vexed with God
He chose you, not me
Does He not know that 
without you, my child 
my life’s just a void

When will the time come? 
When I can hold you, 
kiss you, caress you
and hear your sweet voice 
call me “Ma” again
