Mother’s Day: A new lifetime of uncompromising love

image

With Mother’s Day right ‘round the corner

Looking back, I was quite the performer

Be perfect, keep smiling

Underneath I am dying

It’s a wonder I made it out stronger

 

Look Mommy, Ema!
Look Mommy, Ema!

Growing up with maternal unwell-ness

And he who’d simply abide and acquiesce

While worthy of love

I fell under the thumb of

The source of my own hell and unique stress

 

Mental illness is still quite the conundrum

With stigma, best we steer clear away from

Listen up dear ol’ Dad

‘Cause it makes me so mad

For her life deserved a happier outcome

 

As the one tossed out underneath the bus

There’s a matter we all should discuss

A pill could have fixed it

He instead nixed it

And I am the one they mistrust?

Look. I'm a tree!
Look. I’m a tree!

 

Well the Mrs. and Me, don’t dare parent like thee

For we’re building foundations as strong as the trees

Mighty girls we are rearing

Whose personae we’re cheering

Love and happiness are what we foresee

 

As I look at our kinder each day

I’m kvelling in every which way

Prouder? I couldn’t be

That’s fact, actuality

Nothing could possibly take that away

 

Dear Little and Big, always realize

The love from your momma’s only magnifies

It will never, ever leave you

No matter what you may say or do

For you both make our hearts, super-sized

P.S.

Little and Big, please make bedtime go smoothly

Your mommalah’s can’t stand each night, you’re acting so rudely!

The crazies, please end them

We’re tired of bedlam

And yes, we still love you both, hugely

Wishing all the Momma’s and kinder-caretakers a very Happy Mother’s Day!
