Where were you mom on my first day of school?
Where were you mom when that first A rolled through?
Where were you mom to know your child’s favorite colors?
Other moms know theirs you don’t even bother.
Where were you mom to break up sibling fights?
To send me to bed with no dessert for the night.
Where were you mom to help me braid my hair?
All the other kids have moms it’s just not fair.
Where were you mom on all my birthdays?
No card or gifts from mom was always the worst pain
Where were you mom when I started to cry?
Where were you mom to wipe those tears from my eyes?
Where were you mom at high school graduation?
Thought you would show up for this amazing celebration.
Where were you mom when I went away to college?
Where were you mom to share with me your knowledge?
Where were you mom when I had a problem?
Thought that you’dalways be there to help me solve them.
Where are you mom I may never know?
But just remember ill always love you though.
