Mother: All too oft I failed to understand
how much you needed me to hold your hand...
Looking back sometimes feels disconcerting,
not getting how much you were hurting !
Mother: I did all the things I knew I should,
but maybe not as much as I could !
I failed to put myself in your place;
didn't realize someday the things I'd face !
Mother: I really hope you can forgive somehow,
cause if I knew then what I know now,
I would have tried harder to do much more...
now it's too late to open that door !
Mother: But knowing you in the way I do.
if one more time I could talk to you,
I truly believe you would hug me tight
and tell me everything is alright !

    Beautiful. I can totally relate and recall my own thoughts on past times I wish I could relive.
