MOTHER’S DAY IS IN MAY

 

 

Please, don’t tell my mom

that I was just hit by a car.

Nothing serious, just a couple of scars.

I guess I was lucky, or smart enough,

to remember how to keep my body, mind and soul safe.

I learned from the best,

Watching action movies with the rest.

 

Please, don’t tell my mom that I just recovered from a heavy sunburn,

That my skin hurts and was red and bubbly like hell’s ocean for two weeks,

And that I was scared – that here we are – Skin and Cancer and the Death.

 

Please, don’t tell my mom that I had nothing to eat for two weeks,

Because I couldn’t expect that The Big City life would be full of cheats.

 

Please, don’t tell my mom that I refuse to go on the dates,

Though they are nice dates, without real soul mates.

 

Please, don’t tell my mom that I’m still suffering from my last heartbreak,

That I don’t trust the People , that I always think twice,

And that everyday shit is just too “nice”.

 

Please, don’t tell my mom that after moving back from the States,

I still do cry sometimes. But it’s not bad and it’s not sad, it’s purifying,

The Salt and the Water, it’s needed for Life.

 

But, please, tell my mom that I love her and that it was all worth it.

 

Mother’s day is in May,

And I just gave birth to my first child,

We call him Ray.

 

Like a ray of sunshine, like the way you used to say mom,

That I’m your only Ray of Sunshine.

 

Mother’s day is in May,

And I’m happy to say,

That everything is now okay.

 

And mom,

I will always love you,

Home and Away.
