Mothers & daughters

So many daughters cry
so many mothers cry
for what?

Mean words spoken
cannot be taken back

When all they want
is a tender word
a thoughtful glance

Why can’t mothers let go
why can’t daughters let go
forgive past sins

Why can’t they just hold hands
with gentle respect for one another

Let me set my own tempo
you set your own too
and dance

Daughters want their own way
mothers want their own way
sinking fast

All I want for you is simple
let us talk like friends

Be at peace to find
the loving center

Yes, because everyone has their individual self, everyone their own road, etc. To bask in each other's sunlight, the best we can each be. Bright Mother, Bright Daughter:-)

Very timely Luna. I don't always understand my daughter. She is so complex but then, I am her mother so it is not surprising really.

Aye, but in my limited male view, anger is a chosen response -- trained perhaps. Be your individual self, but not with needless tears.

Luna this speaks volumes...though my mother and I were well tuned with each other most of my life, it's only since I've gotten older that my daughter and I have come together so well. Today we are best friends.

Thanks for your comments. This poem was inspired by a conversation with a friend. Relationships can be so unique and complicated depending on many factors. This is my way with trying to deal with all those emotions.
