Mother -

I cry out to you still,

even now.

Mama -

why won't you stop?

What did I do?

Ok -

This is my fault,

I should never have spoken.

Fine -

I take the blame

for being born.

Mommy -

Can't you see the tears?

They mean I'm sorry.

So sorry.

Just please stop…

and you'll be my mommy again,

but I won't say it.

I promise.

I'm sorry.
