mother's love

we wanted things better for our children than we had
protected and guided them through all of life's disappointing moments
love them like no other human being can
Mother's love is like no other
and sadly there are some who don't know
the privilege to have such a love in ones life
it's not our fault, we've done no wrong
it is others in their lives who influence
and they who are impressionable and weak
but their hurt toward us is so strong
We pick up our heads and go on
with the lump in our throats
and a stupid smile on our face
hopeful for time to heal us and to wake them up
to move forward and stop looking back
keeping our guard up to protect ourselves
