A Lament for My Daughter

By A Loving Mother

Where my daughter have you gone?

I have loved you since before I knew you

Your spirit, your heart, your grace, and your empathy

You are like a bright morning star and the fresh dew on the grass

You believe the world rejected you – it has hurt you and made you afraid


You have protected yourself by building a wall around your heart

You defend your wall with slings and arrows

You are quick to repel and reject - even those who love you

You have hardened your heart


The Evil One has fed your fear and your hurt

He has whispered in your ear schemes and lies

He constantly surrounds you with hate and deceit

He leads you into the wilderness and tells you that you are alone


I wish that you knew that you were a child of God - loved with a passion and   intensity that you cannot fathom

You are not alone in the wilderness – God is with you

God sacrificed His only Son just to be with you

He will never abandon you


I wish that you understood that you are our child and our love knows no bounds

You are not alone in the wilderness – we are there, calling your name

We cover you with love when the world covers you with hate

We long for the day when we are reconciled


Until that time, know that we are there

We will never cease searching for you, praying for you, and loving you

We will be there when your walls come down

Where, my daughter, have you gone?
