Parent’s Lament

I wish that I knew
Just what to do
Whenever you’re feeling this way

To help with the strain,
Alleviate pain
In the moments you push me away

I wish I could learn
Which way to turn
To get to the place you’d feel better

It’s so hard to know
Which direction to go
To get to some sunnier weather

So I’ll sit to the side
Take the turbulent ride
Ready with arms to enfold you

Whenever you’re done
Just know I’m the one
Eagerly waiting to hold you.
