selfish child .. my Mom and me









I talk to you a lot now

and you are gone

it took awhile

to forgive you your trespasses

as you forgave mine,

just like the prayer

I understand it now!

I carried perceived notions

of what you should be

not accepting you for yourself

your talents and your gifts

ignored by my selfishness

how that must of hurt!

you knew all along I would regret

my childish behavior

you understood

I would one day

feel the pain

I must has caused you.

Mothers day is rolling around

I want you to know

your acceptance of my ignorance

and your heartfelt words of love

to this selfish child

helped me to forgive


and see how beautiful

a mothers love is

but of course you knew that

all along.

I love you mom
