I Don't Remember That - Poem by Phil Soar

I guess my parents loved me
Although I don't remember that
I guess they cared how my life panned out
But I don't remember that
It seemed they spent their lives alone
One in the garden the other by the sink
Makes me wonder how their minds would think
I don't remember that

No love shared with a hug or a kiss
Sharing the words 'I love you'
Was something that I'd miss
I don't remember that
Did that make life a misery or dark?
I don't remember that
Is it the reason I have so much doubt
About the way that my life's panned out?
I don't remember that

Now I'm a parent of two, and love abounds
Is that because of the missing sounds
Of a parents words saying 'I Love you'
Or is it just that I don't remember too
Whether I miss those days is abundantly clear
I'm living those days right here
And not doubting my ability too
To tell the kids that 'I love you'

I guess my parents loved me,
I don't remember that
