Daughter To Mother

Sorry for the time we lost through all my tantrums and fits
Sorry for the fights that drove you to your last wits
Sorry when you needed a hug I was never there
Sorry for the times you felt like I would never care

No! I'm not dying and it's not a desperate plea
I'm just beginning to understand the relationship we need
You're supposed to help me when my life gets to be too much
And I'm supposed to help you when you need an extra touch

Take a step back and look at your work, you did a job well done
Some will be good, some may be bad, but my decisions are all my own
I know my brothers need you, but not as much as me
'Cause while they listened I ignored and missed so much in between

Though jobs may bring us stress, and problems grow by the week
I promise to you from daughter to mother you'll always have a friend in me

I was born and raised in the absence of my father. My mother who went through all the ups and downs of life purposed it in her heart to keep the whereabouts of my father. Tried her best to give me a better living. Through the influence of friends and relatives I have been quite angry with my mom until I realized who she really is in my life.
