Se que El amor ni el perdón 
Se compra con un simple regalo
Pero se puede expresar con el 
Corazón en la mano. 

Quizás estas palabras que quisiera
Decirte hoy no las puedas leer en una 
Tarjeta pero es lo que siento y créeme
Cuando te digo que para mi el no estar 
Contigo es una gran pena.

Me diste la vida; me vistes crecer con 
Devoción de madre, me apoyaste siempre
Para no verme caer y yo de niña necia no 
Siempre lo pude entender.

Ahora al pasar de los años que soy mamá
También mis ojos lo pudieron ver y la tristeza
Que algún día te cause vuelve a mi dejando un
Gran vacío por no tenerte cerca. 

Ayer lloraste por mi y hoy por lo que quizás sin 
Saber lo mucho que te hice sufrir es a mi quien
Me toca hoy llorar por ti. 

Nadie podrá llenar jamás el vacío que dejas en mi, 
Ni podrá enmendar esta culpa que ciento por no ser
Lo que esperabas de mi.

    Well, at least not any of us jerks who know mostly English or some other language.

    Gabe we are in America our natives were Indians the most diverse country in the world. I am not presumptious in anyway I just wrote this in one of my Native tongues.. I have so many poems on here and I'm glad you've read a few I'm just a complicated girl with loud inner thoughts thus the long poetry I rarely edit so it's usually raw emotion and lengthy at times but it's gotten me through some rough times and I enjoy it

    You know, I think it was Bridget Fonda-- I'm probably wrong-- who gave her high school graduation valedictorian speech... in french. Was that smart? Yes, very much so. Was it wise? Maybe... Maybe not. What I'm getting at is... we're all not as smart as you. Not all of us know the Latin languages that well. When you add another element into that, it makes it harder. I'd love to know what you wrote, but your not letting anyone take a look at your art.

    Hi Gabe TY 4 trying to read this. It was written for my Mom on mothers day though it's really a diss on the occasion because we are controlled. a lot of times we do things that mean nothing just because we are told but a Mothers love is something we should express freely the true gift is the one you give and receive with true sentiments that's the gist of it anyway
