Forgive My Humanity... - Poem by Simon Chamoun

For the first time I dare... I dare say I dare
Line my words in a rhythm ... describing a love affair
So powerful, so great ... an endless flame of flares
The greatest love to ever be ... its called the Mother's Care

Nine months I spent shedding ... your tears like the pouring rain
Kicking you from the inside ... causing you unbearable pain
Yet when you saw me for the first time ... you shed your tears again
Accompanied with a smile and Hugs ... and love forever to remain

I only wish life had been fair ... in terms of Days and Time
As such love we should celebrate ... throughout the 365
Just that we might be able ... to pay a debt worthy LIFE
As you did grant me life ... through your womb I saw the light

I beg you to forgive me ... knowing you have already had
As your heart never knew hatred ... your Love was the ultimate fact
Yet forgive my human nature ... I showed acceptance all along
To celebrate you once a year ... while once an hour is too damn long

I love you with all my heart ... my soul and selfless being
And as long as I shall live ... one fact I will believe in
That your love will be present ... when the toughs get kicking
With an honest 'I love you Mama' ... I hope I said everything
