Mother's Poem

Forgive me my son,
you who have loved me
most in my life,
forgive me
for not honoring that love,
by taking care of what
you love so very much,
forgive my passion
my lack of control
for what ever failings
that keep me
from taking care of myself
forgive me for not knowing
I am as precious
as you hold me
dear in your heart,
it wasn't for lack
of loving you my dear one,
for I love you
as vast as space
and as quickly as time,
no,
it wasn't for lack of loving you,
it was for lack
of believing
anyone could love
me.

Oh God, this spoke to me! The last line rings so very true!  I think that's most of the problem! Thank you Robert, thank you!

it wasn't for lack of loving you,
it was for lack
of believing
anyone could love
me.

Robert~
This is just wonderful.
I'm so pleased you found it and shared it.
I've already printed it out and made a card out of it for a friend.
It is lovely.

I am so glad you guys liked it. It brought tears to my eyes when I first read it several months ago. It hit home I guess even if I am not a mother!!
