Mother Daughter Poem

This is for my mother, who always loved me, no matter what I did or how little I deserved it.

For The Love Of Mother

Published: May 2008

When I was a child,
My mommy could do anything.
Scare away monsters,
Make bubbles in the bath,
Kiss away the hurt from a booboo.

Sometimes she was too busy to play,
But that was ok.
Games weren't really her thing anyway.

When I was a preteen,
My mom could do a lot of things.
Paint my nails,
Braid my hair,
Teach me about makeup.

Sometimes she got frustrated with me,
But that was ok.
I was pretty pokey.

When I was a teenager,
My mother couldn't do anything right!
Bail me out of trouble,
Buy me cool enough clothes,
Let me stay out late.

Sometimes she tried to control me,
And I hated it!
She couldn't mind her own business.

Now that I'm an adult,
I realize that my mother is human.
She paid bills,
Raised children,
And always got supper on the table.

Sometimes she messed up,
But that was ok.
She did her best, and
always, always loved us.

I pray my daughters one day realize what you have realized. That they remember my life and haven't been so completely jaded by their step mom telling them I am not good enough for them when I was their only constant for 15 years. I need to be allowed to be mommy again. I am defeated. All I ever wanted was to love my daughters, how could they not see that.

I am the mother of this daughter. Now she is a mother of a son. I am curious to know what he will say about his mom in 20 years! My guess is pretty much the same she said about me. But I know she'll be an even better mom to her son than I was to her but it's not apparent until something like this shows itself. She'll second guess herself wonder if she's screwed him up for life doubt her abilities JUST LIKE THE REST OF US!!! He'll be fine - she's already a great mom.
