HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED?
Have you ever wondered,
I hope I haven't produced the wrong vibes.
Why my wonderful family,
Don't want me in their lives.
I wish I knew the reasons,
As sure as Heaven above.
Why I am deprived.
Of their special love.
They all had happy childhoods,
Happy as turtle doves.
One thing they were never short of
Was their mother and fathers' love.
The trials and tribulations of teenage years,
Problems were sorted out.
No need to slap or turn our backs,
No need to scream and shout.
They are parents themselves now,
To my apron strings I don't want them tied.
But once in a while to get a hug,
With their loving arms open wide.
I have been the best mother
To my ability.
So have you ever wondered
What sort of mother was/is me?
