Dear Mother,
Conceived in love, your passion gave me life
The very blood this heart pumps through these veins
A dream fulfilled as mother and as wife
I wonder now, if I was worth your pain

I did not walk the path you set me on
The gifts you gave to me are still like new
My body, I abused, A wasted pawn
I sang my song, performed my own soft shoe

But each thing I have done, I gave my all
Regardless of the deed, I did my best
I never asked you once to break my fall
Nor steal the grass or twigs that line your nest

At times in life, I know I've made you cry
Your passion, is my only alibi

A Mother's love is unconditional no matter what we do with our lives, and you've expressed that so well.

I was looking for new poems of yours to read, but I feel I saw this one before too. Was it one of the disappearing ones? Let me know how many others. I could return and comment to them, Danny SEVEN

I suspect your mom will have no regrets, she raised a kind and compassionate man. What more could any parent ask for.

A mother's love is unconditional. Your poem reminds me of this, Daniel, and how complicated the relationship between parent and child can be. Hugs to you, Rhonda

I'm not even sure what my mother's dream for me was other than to be happy and be a good human being. She wasn't aiming too high:) Thank you, Frederic.
