I see you on mom’s nightstand almost every night,
But I’ll never know who you were when times were right.
I know you caused pain
and I know you were vain
but I also know my mom loves you, anyway.
Through all the violence and the abuse
of drugs and alcohol you over-used,
I never heard any of it
but I see my mothers stressed eyes because of it
the problems you caused
still remain unsolved
and the damage is done
I wish there was none.
My mother loves you with all her heart
I just don’t understand, you broke her heart
although I don’t understand, I’m glad to say
my mother is a strong woman, that is here to stay
although her siblings do not want to live,
she is so strong and has so much to give
She has loved me like you never did
she kisses me every night, her love never hid
For that I thank you for making her so strong
a brilliant women she is and loves so strong.
