Being a mom .. a poem by CLMargerate

lakesunset
I am a mom
sometimes I feel like I failed miserably
I wasn’t the perfect mom
I failed my own mom
in the end.
 
too late to go back
and start over
wistful ‘if only’
hindsight really sucks
why did I spend so much time
working
I should have spent  more time
playing with you
I love you more than life
itself
but I didn’t know
how fast you would grow
I will always be sad
for your pain
caused by me
I wanted to be the perfect mom
I forgave my mom
in the end I know
she loved me anyway
a moms love is forever
I hope you will do the same
for me someday
being a mom is hard
but being your mom
is the best part of my whole life….
love ..
mom
