Talk To Me, Please

Talk To Me, Please

By:Becca Reynolds


Why can’t you tell me

How you feel inside

I promise I won’t judge what you say

I’ve told you a lot

Shared everything

You listened to what I had to say

Helped me in every way

When is it my turn to help you

I saw you this morning

Sitting all alone

At our table

Your head buried in your arms

I asked you what was wrong

You wouldn’t say

I wish you would talk to me

Like I talk to you each day


Author's Note: My thirteen year old wrote this to a friend, and gave it to me to read and share.

I have to agree with Phillip. Your're certainly a chip of the ol' block. *smiles*

to mom and daughter: How you both collaborate to bring more beauty into each other's lives and into ours! You are lucky to have each other and Becca, I especially appreciate your honesty and the love that went into this poem.

A real sweet gift, both in presenting it to you to share and in the offer of the sentiment contained within. Must make you proud!

like mother like daughter. the words flow as naturally and unpent as spring breezes.
