My One Regret
For You Mum
It is coming close to the anniversary of my mother’s death. It is always a difficult time for me as her passing was by her own hand. She took her own life and I never got the chance to tell her simply, that I loved her, but didn't understand her pain. Now I do, suicide is never to be condoned; the one’s left behind have so many questions left to be answered. It has taken me 30 years to move on from my pain, and the scars are still there for everyone to see, depending on how hard they look.
Pull back the reigns, turn off the light,
Let that woman go off into the night.
What is for you, you will get,
Fate dealt a hand that I least expect.
Friendship comes and friendship goes,
whatever the reason, nobody knows.
Life is like an angel, fragile and true,
My soul lingers with the thoughts of you.
Mothers and daughters, love so entwined,
promises of light ever after of the glorious kind.
Soul searching reasons and still I haven’t learned
to let you go forth another love spurned
My mother my love, thoughts of the past
of good times and bad times that never last.
My love for you was never denied,
I am in my heart forever your child.
Anniversaries come and then they pass,
Memories never falter, just hidden by a mask.
Of tears and loneliness that cry to be heard,
sorrow and sadness in life that I shared.
Too late now to make amends,
Tomorrow is another day, where fear lends
an awesome reminder of things that should have been said
“I love you mum without any regrets.”
