Just Because
by Sally Hanan  
1/29/2008 / Poetry


Mommy?

Why?

You've left me
again --
starving,
rotting in a closet
with no toilet.


Mommy, why?

Why don't you love me?


Mommy, why?

Where are your arms around me?
Why don't I hear you saying,
"I'm so sorry.
I should cherish you.
I should not have
I wish
I could have
I would have"

I'm scared.


Mommy, why?

Look at me Mom! I'm the daughter you should want.

Look

Look


Mommy, why?

I must be unlovable.

It's so dark in here.
No one cares.
I don't matter.


Mommy, why?

I
need,
to hear you say,

"I love you,"

You ask me why you should love someone
like
me.


Mommy, why?

Why can't I hear you say,

"I love you.
You're so beautiful.
You're so precious to me.

Why can't I hear you say,

"I love you

just

because?"



Oh!
Jesus is here!
His arms are wide open.
His eyes are full of deep love
and I know he wants me to throw my head
on his chest
and so I do.

It's safe here
in his arms.
Jesus smells of flowers and butterflies and blue sky.

I feel his tears fall on me.

He holds me tight
and strokes my hair.

He kisses my head.

Here,
in his arms
I know
I
am
loved, by my Jesus,

content, in my Jesus,

precious, to my Jesus,

wanted, by my Jesus,

and loveable, to my Jesus.


Just

because.



Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Ps 27:10
