At What Point…

]

Wondering at what point it would matter

Giving care and love over years, open hearted

Meeting your needs, and planning for what is to come.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Giving time and effort over years, open hearted

Helping and providing for you, praying for your success.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Giving materially and spiritually, open hearted

Wanting only that which makes you happy, and fulfilled.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Giving without expectation of return, open hearted

Knowing that this path was of my choosing, glad for the journey.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Enough that you might think of another, understanding

Offering a kind word and a little time to build up those who love you.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Enough that you might consider your actions, your inactions

Planning a thoughtful moment, a gentle hug, ways to share yourself.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Enough that you would see how much the distance hurts me, and care

Turning toward those who have lifted you up, instead of turning… your back.

Wondering at what point it would matter

Saddened that in all the years spent, I left something undone

Teaching you that your family is what remains, after all else has walked away.
