20 Years (Forever, My Mother)

20 Years (Forever, My Mother)

A Poem by n.wan

For my first taste of air. For my first chance to cry. A pain i can't compare. You felt through the night. So red, so fragile. So small, so cold. You held me in your arms not wanting to let go


Too young to keep track. Of the time flying by. But a dream has been shattered. Right before your very eyes. The man who's supposed to love. To cherish and to care. Left you brokenhearted. He left you in despair.


Wounded, broken and bruised. You were scarred for life. But strong did you stood. For your two innocent child. Weeks turned to months. And months turned to years. Never stopped breaking her back. All in the name of her children.


As you grew weary and older. Watching us grow became your only pleasure. Somedays your eyes filled with tears. Some of joy and some of dissapointment. But not a second gone by. Has your love for us waiver. Still

remember the day you said, 'my sons, you are my only treasure'.


But fate is what they call it. The inevitable happened much too soon. They tell me to accept it. That God loves her more then we do. As we stood there watching. Dirt piling up. I know she will live forever. Always alive in my heart.


20 years was all i had. To spent with the one woman. Who have never stopped loving me. Even in my darkest moment. 20 years was all i was given. Was all that i was granted. To be with my one true love. Forever, my mother.
