Near to Us
Who is this woman? And who
are these children? Today she claims
that Happiness truly found her when
she was near the ocean's edge.
What, then, does that say about
all her other days with us?
Does she know she's left me
feeling like I am never enough?
Today she lives regretting all that
she sacrificed to raise her kids.
And treats us like we asked
this of her. And owe her.
Wish I could find that woman,
take my brother's hand, and say,
"Mom, I wish you could find
happiness just being near to us."
