Mother


We threw rice and ran away
I could not stay another day
Your denial left me drenched in fright
That I might find you alone one night
Your lifeless body at peaceful rest,
A peace you could only find in death
We threw the rice and ran away
I could not stay another day
So life went on without perfection
The life I chose became rejection
And so with child I made a choice,
To return to you, I had missed your voice
You had raised me and loved me the best you knew how
And I had left selfishly but understood now,
The pain and the grief you could not control
Life's anxiety has a way of taking hold of us all
I admire your courage taking on every day,
With a will to survive even when you're light fades
We threw the rice and ran away,
But now I am home and forever I will stay.
