Dear mother, I still remember the days you would wake up and Make us pancakes Dance in daddy's shorts You were full of life.
I catch scents that remind me of your sweet perfume (Elizabeth Taylor) And everytime I see a butterfly I feel your breath The fragrance of sweet pink roses you left behind, The curls I have left of you.
I still remember your unchanging love for us That is now buried 6 feet under my ***** converse Your relentless worry Your cell phone number at the top of my head (I dial it from time to time).
I still feel the void that remained And how we tried to stay together After you looked away from the world Who would've thought that daddy would Bruise me Beat me Touch me (I'm so sorry you saw that). Who would've thought brother would muffle my screams Eat my soul Lick my tears (I'm sorry you didn't know).
And there's no real way to end this but To know I will always miss The way your lip rolled back when you laughed Don't worry momma We are okay Sometimes We'll be okay And we'll meet again But until then
I am not a perfect daughter I'm sure you agree Your temper is hotter I'm the reason frequently Telling you it is only in your brain You have a meltdown Upset Chalking worry up to being insane Not what you deserve to get Going to be an improved child I'm completely grown Easy to provoke and wild Still the sweet baby you've always known Now I am telling you I'm sorry For excessive bitchiness and tears Blaming you when it was me Causing half the problems through the years It is not easy to admit I'm wrong Doesn't mean that you are right It takes two to get along Like it does to fight It is going to take determination from both of us It will be worth the patience to try Maybe peace we longingly discuss Will be reality for you and I I cannot change this on my own Wish you would meet me halfway Once in awhile just leave it alone On subjects you feel you must put in your say You want what's best for me Hurt because you care One thing I've been itching to let free "Thank you" for being there Regardless of what flaws come between Relationship has withstood them all Though at times you can act mean Petty quarrels usually stay small So this is a token of my hidden gratitude To show how you mean so much Also an apology for being rude Not keeping in proper touch No matter how drastic our ups and downs The thing that will not ever change That you'll always be around Arms open to me despite how strange I often take that for granted Focus on bad stuff you've done Of all the occasions I've ranted Not once did I mention the depth of your love The countless sacrifices you willingly made In order for me to do well How my hair you'd affectionately braid Somehow I left out of the stories I'd tell So it is written (here in purple ink no less) Save as proof of what's in my heart Next time it will remind us when in distress What is important when falling apart Forgive me for pain I've inflicted Lies and each mess my hand makes Know my actions have left you afflicted I swear I'll make up for all the mistakes
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who’s always with me To the one who helped me become the person I’m today To the one who taught me to treat others how I treat myself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person whose approval I craved To the one who helped me understand that nobody will ever care for me To the one who taught me that I’m a piece of garbage myself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person whose laugh I was scared of To the one who helped me know that I’m undeserving of love To the one who taught me to hate the mirror image of myself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person whose voice haunts me To the one who helped me avoid responsibility and criticism To the one who taught me reasons why I should **** myself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who made me scared of thinking To the one who helped me breed hate in who fundamentally am To the one who taught me that others will always be better than myself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who made feel guilty of my depression To the one who helped me find innovative ways to hurt me without a trail To the one who taught me that everything wrong is a fault in myself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who made me a mom to my siblings To the one who helped me get rid of my carefree childhood joy To the one who taught me that in life one can only care for themself
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who isolated me of the ones I loved To the one who helps me know my worth in negative numbers To the one who taught me jealousy and that I'm hers
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who fed me lies as facts To the one who helped me befriend an ED princess To the one who taught me that was the only way to be one
Happy Mother’s Day to the person who made me scared of accomplishing my dreams To the one who helped me endure years of abuse and neglect as a mask for love To the one who taught me that I could never be truly happy
Happy Mother's Day to the person who polluted the word mother for me To the person who made me dread being a mother myself To the person that I'm horrified of emulating and ******* other child's life up
Happy Mother's Day to my mom
This is poem I wrote for the woman that give birth to me on Mother’s Day 2020 after a big fight and a lot of crying. This represents that while many people are thankful for their wonderful mums, some of us don’t have a good relationship with our mother or aren’t close to our blood family or simply, not everyone has a mother. That’s okay. It’s that’s you, I send you love 💕 -🍎
