Mother, You Never Told Me So

Mother, You Never Told Me So

2 mins

As a toddler in your arms I reached out and opened my heart to one and all.

In your wisdom I bathed knowing you to be the epitome of love who cared

You gave me not a chance to blast at them even when they scarred you now and then.

You made me stand up and walk with my head held so high

And in the summer of my life you became the cooling splash from the sky

You brought into my life myriad colours that put even the rainbow to shy.

Leading me, prodding me, never to doubt or hate but to believe it’s right.

You let me fall and allowed me to cry and stabbed my ego in angst and wry.

Today in the wilderness of my life, I stand alone wearing a sham while on the outside it looks all glam.

My smile hides in the shadows of a million doubts all scary. Blinded by the darkness, worried and wary.

It’s not strange, fear now has me in its cage.

Arms clasped, mind closed, stuck in the deep recesses of life that’s gone by,

I wilt in despair knowing of all that have passed away. I cry and cringe but see none.

Wish you were here to hold me now...

To create the magic with tales of a world beyond.

Let me be the toddler in your arms, for I want to grow small,

To feel your warmth and to rest in calm.
