Someone You Don’t Talk to as Much as You’d Like to – 30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 10

I have but one

solitary son

Unlike my daughters two

don’t talk enough to


Neither I must say

do either of they

Much from him hear

but why remains unclear


I know he doesn’t mean

that it should be seen

As a purposeful slight

we’ve not had a fight


Rather he is busy

and it makes me dizzy

Just to try keeping track

when interests he doesn’t lack


And does have his own

son who is his clone

In a pod two peas

of their varying degrees


While always on the go

it doesn’t seem to show

That it occurs to him

he only calls on whim


Or he’s in need of something

where mom can be a blessing

And more times than not

my voice-mail is forgot


 Yet, not done with disrespect

as now you might suspect

But rather just the way

of his youth today


And the time will come

as sooner does for some

This error he will correct

when seeing his neglect


More at-tentative he will be

in keeping in touch with me

And so I do refrain

from about it to complain

  1. It really is hard to compete with a wife I learned that lesson from my stepmothers and I will not make that mistake with my son.

    1. Well, Blaine isn’t married, he’s just too wrapped up with himself right now to think about mom unless he needs me for something. My eldest daughter calls me at least 2 or 3 times a week, Sara is living with us now and i talk to him once a month if I am lucky and we live in the same town ;( I just blow it off to him being 25 and self-involved. I have no doubt that he loves and respects me though 🙂 thanks for the comment, David. Blessings, Terri
