Momma, I Would've Died For You


Momma, I’m so sorry you felt so much pain.
I don’t want to point the blame.
I just feel so a shame.
That you had to end your last days like this, I would’ve died for you.
If only I knew.
But it was out of my control.
As their house went through military patrol,
You’re gone now.
And I don’t know how.
You became so frail.
I wasn’t there to watch you fail.
I would’ve done anything for you. I would’ve died for you.
When I see what you went through it hurts me.
I would’ve tried to protect you.
I didn’t care about what I got.
I already got a lifetime of love.
I couldn’t have asked for more.
You were always there when I walked through the door.
When I would pour my heart out,
You always welcomed me back.
Momma, I’m so sorry that you suffered.
Your sufferings reached me. I would’ve died for you.
I just wanted to see you!
To see you smile again.
To hear your laugh again,
I would’ve done everything for you.
Momma, I would’ve died for you.
I love you, momma!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
