Deaf Ear

Empathetic and concerned
you appear,

Showing me
how close you are, and near,

And that both my daughter and I,
you very much endear.

Yet, you always give me
a deaf ear.

Whenever her name comes up,
you don’t wish to hear

You change the subject,
scared to be sad and shed a tear.

Listen, I got the message,
it is crystal clear!

But, you have created a barrier
between us, my dear,

When you don’t acknowledge
She is part of me, due to your fear.
