“No one plans to take the path, that brings you lower”…

She made a decision…
A long time ago…
The repercussions…
She could not know…
Walking away…
Handing over her child…
Because they claimed…
She was too wild…

Couldn’t care for another…
And look after herself…
So she gave him up…
Despite how she felt…
Leaving him broken…
Both lost and alone…
To start his new life…
In a different home…

And she never called…
Or tried to visit…
She tried to build a life…
Without him in it…
But she carried his face…
Every single day…
And felt the shame…
Knew she’d one day pay…

Either on this Earth…
Or burning in Hell…
For her horrid crimes…
And lies she did tell…
But the day came around…
Where he wanted to know…
Everything about her…
Why she had to go…

Demanded to see her…
And speak face to face…
He began to search…
And slowly did trace…
Finally finding her…
Lost, lonely and alone…
Sat by the open fire…
In a mental home…

With eyes full of anger…
And hate in his heart…
He looked at this woman…
Before slowly falling apart…
Holding her so tight…
In his big strong arms…
He quietly promised…
She’d come to no harm…

Making a decision…
He’d never regret…
All that had passed…
He would never forget…
But try to move forward…
As mother and son…
In spite of the fact…
That her mind had gone…

  1. P.S. Liked this very much as well, love this return to folk type music, with really good strong words, and really good playing and instrumentation behind it. Thanks

  2. J, I swear this has just ripped my heart apart! This is so beautiful and yet so haunting. I must remember to have tissues close by next time I read your work (Just in case lol).

    Hugs my friend,

    S xx
