Nurturing, caring, sacrificing,
Traded off experiences,
Constant satisficing.

Protecting, guiding, worrying,
Tenuously constructed identities,
Selflessly disintegrating.

Yearning, missing, longing,
Sensitive souls in fragile bones,
For some succor waiting.

Saddened, disheartened, frightened
Rheumy-eyed and hopeless,
Praying for a comfortable end.
