To The Girl Who Made Her Cry~

Updated on July 28, 2015

CrisSp is your Emergency Specialist at 37 thousand feet. A writer without a niche. Wonderwoman consumed by wanderlust!

Who would understand the challenges of a mother and the choices that her daughter (or son) makes? This poem quite expressed in free verse is an expression of a mother's loving sentiments and of her tender heart's longing for some answers from questions she doesn't even remember now, simply because the pain and the agony made her numb.

Enjoy the music while you read.


'Though she hasn't seen you yet

You already have captured her heart.

The excitement was intense

When it was your time to show up.

Despite the pain and the agony

She kept calm and quietly prayed.

Half of her body was nearing death

And the other part was giving life.

She cried upon hearing your first cry

She looked at you with her heart racing fast.

Your tiny feet kicked, it was bliss

Your tiny lil’ fingers grasped her hands.

You’re a small wonder of life

Fresh from her flesh that she beseech.

A reflection of her entity indeed

The fruit of a more enduring love.

Now, so much has happened in this life,

She cannot forget the way you made her cry.

The nightly ritual will be forever in her head

The pain, the fear, the years and the tears.

Then you’re all grown up, you think you're ready to fly

Blinded by emotions you left without thinking a bit.

She only wish for a hug and a kiss

And perhaps a little bit more of time.

You made her cry when she first saw you

But those were tears of joy down her cheeks.

You caused her pain and then again,

But she'll endure it for the sake of love.

And 'though you didn’t give her the chance

To completely be the mother she ought to be.

Please know that in her heart, you will always be

The daughter she always wanted to have.

She drifted apart hoping you'd sincerely realize

See where you erred, come back to your senses.

She's forced to deal with a broken heart

Thus, go on with life with unembellished soul.

In the nest of hollowness, she wondered

Whatever happened to the girl she humbly raised.

For now she'll cherish whatever is left

Pray that you're safe 'til her glimmer is gone.

      @Faith Reaper,


      Old Albion,







      Life Iz Beautiful,

      Eiddwen and ahorseback:

      The mother of the girl would like to sincerely thank you all for the overwhelming support that you've poured in here. She's not crying anymore and certainly feeling the love. Words can absolutely do magic and you are all amazing! Love back to you!

      What is love without the touch

      that nurtures

      You form and guide young hearts

      in healing broken futures

      Your tears are memories

      your pain absolves

      You too were there once

      as in yearning your heart revolved

      In silent understanding you

      shoulder the tears

      And of the doults they feel

      throughout the years

      Yet you smile in your soul every time

      they say Mom !

      Hide your own tears smile and

      love on!

      Just a little poem for you!

      This poem is so well written that for some moments I was living your life.

      Just have faith on the love you have showered and are still showering to your daughter from your heart. She will realize your love soon.

      Everything happens for a reason... Just pray that it is for your daughter's well being.

      Voted beautiful.

      Have a peaceful day ahead.

      You continue to soar above the clouds as a writer, CrisSp. Just look at all the commentaries. You touch our hearts and souls with your literary snapshots of life--from the sheer joy to the most challenging angst. I thought of my daughter and of the necessity of the mother-daughter and, yes, father-daughter conflicts in order for the young woman to emerge from her childhood cocoon. Beautifully written!

      Your story and this poem so touched me, as I am a mother myself with two girls (you know). We share the load and I give you all my good wishes to keep yourself strong. One day, I have told you if you remember that your daughter will come home. No other home is more called a “Home” to where the mother is waiting with open arms.

      A mother remains a mother whatever the circumstances may be. I remember the time I was her age and I did not speak to my ma for months, yes, for long months! Pride and anger you see, over clouded me. Then, my pa came to me in tears and knelt before me in my bedroom, begging me to lower my pride and go give my ma a kiss. Just that one kiss, he asked from me for my mama. He assured me that if I make the move to my ma and forgive and forget what had happened, life would go on normally at home. Every single advice he gave me from his feelings I have cherished until these days. My ma and I never went numb again and she lost her pride as I did mine.

      Space is all your older daughter needs to prove herself, dear friend Cris. Look up for an “open cloud” and you will find God is watching over her and you too. Prayers heal and bring joy though it will take time that seems to be a wait forever to bring back the daughter first born to you. It is a burden, I know, but perhaps God has a purpose? Let us hope that is not the case and is plainly part of her growing up. She is asking for acceptance of her wishes. Can’t we bow down and accept it for her this time as long as it brings your heart to sing again? Then, a mother’s care and nurture should stay the same…follow through every step but carefully and patiently. However, be always thankful of the love and continue to cherish the tenderness your second daughter offers and shares to you and your home. Now that another season is here and Christmas means family togetherness again, I feel the love of a daughter you are yearning. I feel the same love I yearn from my two daughters even in our daily lives; no season is more important than every single day we need them to be the way we raised them. My heart pains when simple welcoming kisses and goodbyes are ignored…the simple “Good evening, mom; and a kiss” and “Bye mom, I love you; and a kiss.” I have taught them these starting when they learned to talk, but where did all these lessons go? Consistency, I teach them consistency, but many times, it is plain forgotten.

      I love you my friend, Cris. You are one true friend of mine. You know we are so close to being identical in the things we do, our passions and the daughters we have. We can always talk. Cheer up!

      Sharing and you know where...~Passionate Poetry on FB! Beautiful poem though and went well with Celine Dion's video.

      Hi CrisSp. A beautiful poem and subject. As a man it might be said the bond is different with our children. I am proud to say that my daughter is the apple of my eye. She is loved and we are loved. She has given us a grandson and the love goes on.

      Voted up and all.

      You were so right dear CrisSp, as I can relate so much to these very thoughts you have written her. From that moment of birth and throughout a mother's children's lives, a mother's love is unconditional, even when a mother's heart may get broken my her own child's words, which is so very painful. A mother still never stops loving.

      Thank you for this profound write and for linking my hub too.

      Voted way up and sharing

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Mothers and daughters - from love at first sight - to watching them walk away, making choices a mother doesn't understand or approve of - trying to understand, to be there, but then the pull away again. All that love plus a heartaching, emotional, roller coaster. I have seen situations where, eventually, the hurting is healed and relationships renewed - here's to second chances!

      Well, well crissp,

      B-E-A-Utiful poem. I can't imagine what a woman has to go through giving birth to a child. With your poem though it just reminds me of how thankful I am, towards my mom. So, even though some of the poem was sad. In the end, it has been one of the greatest poems I have read. voted up.

      Thank you Lord for your visit and your heart warming comments. I'm actually grateful for Facebook and the inventor of cellphone and wi-fi connections, without which it is impossible to shoot a quick message and knowing my daughters' whereabouts. So, with all the gadgets that we now have, wherever, we may be there's no more excuse not to communicate. But then again, in a most civil way nothing can replace the face-to-face talk.

      Although I'm not my mother's daughter, this poem makes me reflect on life with my own mother and times where I may have upset her. However this poem also takes me to the times where we've had so much joy; many more of those times are sure to come. Great poem with an excellent selection of words.

      I'm with Randi on this one...I was sensing the daughter pulling away from the mother, as they all do....and there is of course pain associated with that, and you captured it all beautifully.

      peace and happiness to you, Cris!

      Randi Benlulu 5 years ago from Mesa, AZ a mother I am interpreting this a little differently. I am feeling th pull of a teen age daughter growing up and not needing her mother as much. I may be wrong but I just want to say, these are stages, "rites of passage" so to speak. I loved the line "The daughter she always wanted to have" I have a 19 year old daughter. She is my everything but not always my everything easy! Good luck, as I tell myself often,"this too shall pass"

      Thank you for this beautiful poem! And for sharing it with us! up+, dear Cris! and sharing!

      Indeed very touching and I felt every word. The video just added to the beauty and endearing love between a mother and daughter. Mother's cherish their newborns, giving them love and protection. I've seen my children grow from babies to adults and the transition was a miracle to watch and be part of if even for a short time. Thank you for sharing your feelings with us in verse, bravo, voted up and shared.

      So touching! The words added to Celine Dion's voice, can awake a very sensitive side in every each of us. Thanks for the inspiration. I know you have a young daughter and in every overnight flight schedule you make a call to check on her. Mothers are forever and that has no price tag. Wonderful poetry my dear Christina!
