Before the light
Touches the ground
On the floor
My feet are found

Within this house
All else asleep
Unknown to them
The pain I keep

An unseen force
That drives my way
Work, Work, Work
No time for play

My memory reaches
Back to a place
My father worked
And kept the pace

Empty birthdays
Lonely days
Months, then years
All a haze

Christmas came
Christmas went
On each of us
Nothing spent

Sock and shoes
Tape did bind
Resentment built
Within my mind

As I grew
A drive instilled
Within my hart
Now is willed

Never to see
My children hurt
Or live like me
Feet on dirt



I stand up
My bones they creak
My back still sore
My muscles weak

Then back down
Upon my knees
Thank you God
And would you please

Bless this day
Make me strong
To give them all
My heart has longed

Through this house
I kiss each cheek
Bless them Lord
For they are meek

Into the light
On my lips a smirk
And as always
I go to work

This was very moving to me - I could feel exactly what she was going through. You have some wonderful, wonderful stanzas here - too many to mention! Love the one about kissing every cheek, and several others! Wonderful job!
