Words For My Mother



I never told my mother

That it's okay to slow down

And take a break,

Put the burden of

The entire house away

For a while and breathe

I never told my mother

That she doesn't have to

Bear everything alone,

And that I am here for her,

That I can dump her worries on me

I don't remember telling my mother

That I love her

And that I am sorry

For every time I made her go mad

But I also never told my mother

That I need a hug,

That I am tired too,

That more often than not

I feel like I'm standing

On the edge of the steepest cliff

And that I can't stop feeling that way.
