Feeling Blue

A MOTHER, A DAUGHTER
A daughter - to a mother
Is a mirrored image of herself
She sees the same face
She feels the same hurt

A mother to a daughter
Is a cruel reminder
Of things to come
She sees the same face
She feels the same hurt

Why, when the two stand together
Can't they see
The mirrored image
The cruel reminder
They only see authority
They only see rebellion

When does the distance
Between them seem so far
Yesterday they walked together
Yesterday they talked together
Two minds, one thought
A mother, a daughter

What makes a mother
Forget that she was young
She made so many mistakes
She cried a stream of tears
Only to land on her two feet
All of it now behind her.

What makes a daughter
Wish that she was grown
Away from her mother's loving arms
Standing by herself
Not needing anyone
Making her own choices

A daughter to a Mother
Is the greatest gift God gives
A chance to change destiny
Prove herself better
The life she wished she'd lived

A mother ‒ to a daughter,
Is a fortress to conquer
A wall to climb over
Prove herself better
Make a life that's all her own.]

Hi Mari,you know the saddest thing is,I've cried many tears over the years to give and give and exspect nothing in return,something happened a long time ago that both she and I will never forget.Now she hasn't stopped punishing me for the thing I had no power over.Such is life.*Sighs*

I wrote in a comment somewhere about forgiveness. It is such an important little think in our lives and it causes the most pain in the world!

Even in a healthy mother/daughter relationship, the time will come for the daughter to become an individual and independent person. I am also in the situation where my children will be leaving the home and have to become independent and live their own lives ... it is a day I am not looking forward to, but I cannot stop them ... I owe it to them.

BUT, if it is because of a something gone wrong, then it is very painful, I experienced that too ... I will post about forgiveness some time ...

{Huggs} and take care ... never loose faith!

Maybe you should meet my Daughter toodela, then you will see for yourself.I have forgiven myself,now she needs to forgive herself,harbouring resentment towards another, is not healthy.
You have mail by the way.
