My Mother's Sadness...a poem

My Mother’s Sadness

I saw sadness in her eyes that I had never seen before.
A longing for something that was not there.
A lost dream of a time when life was pure,
And joyful.
Now, it was gone.
Gone only to memory,
To a place that only she could visit.
A place that was no more
Nor in this life time.
I wanted to cry with her,
Comfort her pain,
Take it away from her,
But all I could do,
Was just be there
And wallow in the tears that were hidden from me.
