All I ever wanted since I was very little
was a family to call my own
I wanted many children
Boys and girls
Short and tall
Dark or blue eyes
Straight hair or curly locks
Little humans to give my love to
To raise them, to teach them
All about this world
I'm lucky I got three
Each as different as can be
I loved them
I spoiled them
I gave them my all
Now that they're all grown and gone
I can't help but wonder
did i do a good job?
I'm not sure, I am really not
But I'd certainly hope so
Are they happy?
Are they healthy ?
Are they productive members of the work force ?
Are they loving ?
Are they loved?
Are they lonely?
Are they hurting ?
Are they certain why they came to this world for?
Have they found themselves yet?
Have they found true love?
When they look back at their childhood, do they feel warm inside ?
I know, I wasn't perfect
I'm sure I made many mistakes
But one thing stands true still to this day
I loved each one of them with all my heart and my soul and my brain
And there's nothing in this world I would not do for them
I'd give all my blood and my organs in a heartbeat if they needed so
All I ask is for a little forgiveness
If I didn't turn out to be the perfect mother they deserved
