Mother and Child ~ Gustave Klimt

With head in hands she sits and stares
at a room without life, without light
wondering how she came to be
a prisoner in this human cage

a daughter gone with a word
leaving behind the debris
of selfish callousness
and broken memories

regardless of the pain
she will sweep the pieces up
and make them whole again
and give them back with love.
