Mother

Mother may I take a piece of your heart
And carry it with me as I stumble through life?
And Mother I’m sorry to have to say,
When did that pretty smile fade?

Mother may I stay out late?
And maybe disappear for a few days?
Mother may I come back home
When I find myself a little too alone?

Mother may I crash your car?
When I drive home drunk from the bar.
And Mother might I call you late
When I’m a bit high and can’t walk straight?

Mother may I take your wedding ring
And sell it to buy some things I need?
I can’t afford the place next door so,
Mother may I sleep on your bedroom floor?

Mother will you hold me tight
As I shake and vomit through the night?
And Mother won’t you tell me why,
All I do is see you cry?

Mother won’t you stand by my side
As I do things for which I won’t apologize?
Dear Mother will you hold my hand
When I stand in front of the lawman?

Mother may I take a piece of your heart
And carry it with me as I stumble through life?
And Mother I’m sorry to have to say,
I may break it everyday.
