Hold and cuddle them while you can.
Before you know it, it is you they cannot stand.
Wipe their noses and butts,
Help them out of ruts,
Watch as they drive you nuts!
Eyes that once glowed with pride
Go on to swollen and full of tears.
Before you know it, you question
“What happened to all those years?”
You do your best not to pass on your fears.
You give them room to grow.
But we aren’t taught how to cope when our daughter becomes a ho
Or our son an abusive asshole
Or a drug addict,
But, HEY! At least you get ONE day!
So to all the mothers out there…
Don’t think you are alone in a world of perfect moms because none of us have it figured out. All you can do is be the best version of yourself and if anyone wants to judge you for that, fuck them, wink back.
