MOTHER, DID YOU KNOW?

MOTHER, DID YOU KNOW?

So long ago, as a boy some dimes I did steal,

I was not so perfect as you knew I was for real.

Change in his pocket while he did sleep, taken by me,

Did you know I didn’t cry when you cried, I was there at your side?

Mother did you know that it’s alright to let the secrets go,

I saw your torment, guilt did never have a beautiful glow.

I knew of secrets that kept you on edge, forever you cry,

Did you know where I was in the middle of the night,

While you slumbered I was freezing with fright.

Mother, did you know that it’s no sin to struggle with pain,

Did you know you were loved even when you lost your way?

I think of so many times of good, sad, and bad, you made me mad,

Did you know I loved you as I put so much stress upon you, did you,

Mother, did you know that the world is less now that you’ve gone.
