Mother and Child

Because I love you, I mention your mistakes

But you lash out at me

With words like swords and tears streaming down

You forgot me at one point

I remember though, of all the tears that made me drown

Because I love you, you came back

 

Because I love you, I still stay with you

Even through tough times

Because I love you, I rely upon you for happy chimes

 

For you mama, you are my world

Caring for me when I’m foolish

Always supporting me

Even through the tiniest examples

Thus, I give my love back to you

Because I love you, and will continue

For the rest of eternity . . .

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
