I Beg You

When I heard you were in the hospital it all became so clear. I better take advantage of the time while you are here. We need to see eachother and find a common ground. It's taken over twenty years for you to come around. We've wasted our whole lifetime There's so much we don't know. I doubt you know my favorite song or favorite t.v. show. You say you've quit the smoking. I fear it will not last. If you don't take this seriously You'll just repeat the past. I'm begging you sincerely. You say you'll be my mother. To do this may take all you have. Unlike you, I have no other. You have two other daughters To step into my place. You are my only mother and you cannot be replaced.
