Oh, how my heart aches.
I love you so much.
But you will not let me near.
If there were just something to say
that would make it all better, I would.
You just keep pushing me away.
I see the fear and anger in your eyes.
I know I can never understand.
I know I have no right to tell you how
to think or who you are.
I just want to reach out, but you just
knock my hands away.
I just want to hold you.
You just turn away.
I will tell you one thing though.
You are not the only one suffering.
I suffer too, for I love you.
My child, you do not have to be alone.
But I leave the choice in your hands.
I know only you know what to do.
SCOTT DAVID BUCKLEY
Dedicated to all those who love us.
