Remembering last Mothers Day
before I had a clue,
of what this awful past 12 months
had in store for you,
I greedily took for granted
that you’d always be there,
dishing out large quantities of
your special love and care.
Didn’t see the fear behind your eyes
or the truth behind those guilty lies,
Or did I Instead, just bury my head?
Easier to ignore what might be in store,
until it just wouldn’t be ignored anymore.
The Doctors, consultants and hospitals too,
became part of everyday.
As you fought with all your spirit to make IT go away.
And I’m so very proud of you
After all you’ve been subjected to
I don’t know how you’ve found your strength…
I hope I’ve been as strong
an unwilling witness to your pain
our happy life!
what went wrong?
I’ll always be here for you,
do anything you need.
I treasure our time together,
And I’m happy to take the lead.
Because now it’s YOUR turn mother,
to soak up all MY love
and take it all for granted
and show a little greed.
Please stop worrying about being a nuisance or asking too much of me.
If the story had turned out differently,
I’d now be writing your eulogy.
As it is, I thank God for everyday
I get to spend with you.
A mothers love is
a perfect love and
I LOVE YOU!
