Mom

From that moment
From your womb I came.
From that moment
Your life wasn’t the same.
You thought I was precious.
You thought I was sweet.
Even at 2 in the morning.
When you were dead on your feet.
You rocked in your chair
While from your breast I would feed.
Assured that throughout my life
You’d fulfill my every need.
With meat you nurished my body.
With the bible you nurished my soul.
And with books for education
So that I wouldn’t grow up a fool.
For all that you’ve done
My debt payment is due.
But the only way I can pay
Is to say Mom, I love you.
