“i Saw My Baby Crying” - Poem by Linda Winchell

I saw my baby crying
What has made my baby blue?
Could it be the love I’ve forgotten to show her?
Was it allowing her, to go love someone new?

She use to smile at me and give big hugs
But with time and distance in between.
Her love and hugs for me disappeared
They’re no longer to be seen.

Does she love maybe another?
Is this what’s going on?
I need to find out from her rose colored lips
Of which I had once been so fond.

I need to take some time to be
The person she once knew.
And hear the words for me once again
Her telling me, ” My Love is for only you.”

    this feeling of Separation is experienced by many parents. It is an important topic
    and very well presented too. Well done for your poem of the Day.
    I enjoyed it very much.

    Lovely poem with a perfect rhyme, immensely wonderful and awesome. It also suggests a bit about child psychology and the understanding - or the lack of it - between a mother and her baby. Thanks for sharing. I quote:
    She use to smile at me and give big hugs
    They’re no longer to be seen.
