Dreams Of The First Born (poem)

Updated on July 13, 2015

My mother you must be ashamed of me

Your first I should have really been your best

Example of your dreams for all the rest

Instead you were the very first to flee


You were the reason I was richly blessed

Your ray of hope was never hard to see

And when you needed change there I would be

To help restore some order to your nest


My mother died so hurt I couldn’t cry

I was among the last to get the call

But after all she taught us to behave


They needed me so they could say goodbye

To cover up the shame displayed by all

I put a single flower on my grave

Music only
