Words of A Sweet and Sour Mom

Real Title: Words of a Sweet and Sour "Mom"
(the title heading won't take quotation  marks
and other special characters, a thing I find most 
irritating because a title can really lose its effect
without these things!)

“You MUST call me Mom” not such a bad thing to ask - unless demanded “You’ve been a good wife” this remark came with a cruise - best gift of my life My husband and kids - all are in her will but me. . . . “Andrea’s not blood"

My Spiritual Mom

Mom’s Bible stories 
my first words inspired to be. . . . 
that Jesus loves me

her best-loved motto -
what’s next to godliness. . . . 
eight kids cleaning up

feasting on Scriptures
strong in mind, body and soul. . . . 
Mom might outlive us

When God Created Me

my mom used to say…
there was an Angel, watching
when God created me

I did believe her… 
about the Angel, watching
me, since I was kid

and, I did love you… 
oh, my Angel, for watching
life was full of joy

now, I hate you…
suddenly you stopped, watching
me, after ten years

you left me alone…
on blissful day, not watching
the eagle of prey

the eagle of prey…
on my youth, you stopped watching
and, what have I done?

many years passed by…
alone, and no one’s watching
tears never run dry

over three decades…
on sinful life, who’s watching?
me, I’m cruel and sad

but, I learned something…
be brave, when no one’s watching
you live in this world

living, for today…
tomorrow, I’ll be watching  
my son sleeps, with peace

my mom did not say…
not only Angel, watching
when God created me

when God created me…
Angel and Devil, watching
and, I wonder….why?
