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

*
