It didn’t matter that I wasn’t thankful,
Didn’t make a difference that my patience
Always seemed a little thin.
It didn’t bring to bear on how you saw me
That the way I said hello to you
Was toxic, and the way I said goodbye
Implied I might not wish to say hello again.

It was never consequential that I hurt you,
Never changed your mind that I could
Cause you such distress.
And even in the darkness when
I didn’t offer light to you,
But took it for myself,
You stayed and loved me nonetheless.

I hope it’s not to late to say I’m sorry,
Hope the hour hasn’t passed to say
Just how much that you mean.
I wish I could remember that
First day we ever met and I
Could listen now with better
Ears the words I know you’d sing.

Happy Mothers Day
