If I Could Give My Mom the World

Saturday, May 10, 2014

If I Could Give My Mom the World

If I could give my mom the world
Or anything she wanted,
I'd give her my own heart and soul
And leave my own heart haunted.
I'd take upon myself her life
With all its strife and pain,
And let her ease into some space
Where she could live again.

The pain for me would not be pain,
At least not for a while;
For I'd be doing it for her,
And I would see her smile.

I wish that I could take her heart
And cleanse it with my tears,
And make her sorrow go away,
And answer all her fears.

I wish, I wish, but then I can't,
As I watch helplessly,
And take her in my arms and say
I wish that it were me.

But loving is a hard, hard way,
With all the pain it brings.
And yet there is no other way
To touch the heart of things.
Have a wonderful and Happy Mother's day.

    Boy you really poured out your soul in this blog! Is your mom gone? If so just remember she is in heaven looking down on you. If not it sounds like you have an amazing loving relationship. Something to really be proud of. I loved my mother, but I don't know if she ever knew that. She was caught up in her own ego too much.
I think it is a real blessing to have a child. Definitely a gift from God. have a wonderful day, and you are amazing! eva
