I'm Sorry Mom, I Do Love You
The smile quickly faded when I saw your heart break.
From internal bleeding, your eyes turned red
As red as the handprint you wanted to leave on my cheek
The cheek you use to kiss when you tucked me in' I remember your smile then.
I was ungrateful for anything you did for me
I took your love for granted
Wiped it off like lint on my shirt
Now you're hurt
I take it back
All that I've said
I don't mean none of it
I love you Mom
More than words can say
Thank you for everything
