There she sat in a lonely and dark room.
Tears falling from the news she just heard.
The pain and anger she felt freezing her to the chair.
The not knowing of what was to come was hard to bear.
Seeing her son, explosions of all feeling hard to control.
The look in his eyes when he looked at her, was the question why.
Her heart ached, an answer she could not give to him.
Standing up, she took him in her arms and they cried together.
When the crying was over, the words they spoke were soft and unsure.
The decisions were made with caution and careful planning.
The unknown and fear chilling both of them to the very core.
The steps taken from that day forward, they walked them together.

Looking at the sunrise, my heart and soul tear apart.
My breath catches inside my lungs and I feel as if they will explode.
My eyes sting as I try to hold back the unshed tears.
The blood inside my veins burns like fire as I stand rooted to the ground.
The past, present and thoughts of the future intertwine with one another.

Thoughts of should of, could of and would of plagued my unquieted mind.
I fall to my knees still looking to the sunrise and softly whisper to the silence.
Questions that laid buried deep within my being fell from my quivering lips.
Feelings of guilt, unworthiness, condemnation, and conviction covered me like a shroud.
Weary, weak, bewildered, and drained of all feeling, I released all that was within me.
Standing, I looked to the sunrise once again and felt the promise of seeing you again.
