Poem: You Weren’t That Kind of Mom

When I popped out of you
You were so busy already
Sharing photos of me
With your friends? No
You weren’t that kind of mom

When I feel down
And scraped my knee
I didn’t climb up on your lap
You didn’t kiss my boo boo
You weren’t that kind of mom
When I started school
You said ok, go ahead
You didn’t fret
And ask how did it go
You weren’t that kind of mom

When I said I need some space
When I asked you to let me go for awhile
You didn’t hug me and smile
You didn’t say, Take your time
You weren’t that kind of mom

But time passes
And life is strange
We all have the right
To change

When you kissed me yesterday
And glowed with pride
When you were so happy
To be by my side
I was surprised
Because for so long
You weren’t that kind of mom

About the poem:
This poem is a collage of ideas from several co-writers. I hope that we as daughters and sons, moms and dads exercise and allow others the right to change.
