One Of Us Had To Go - Poem by david bailey

Or so it seemed
my Mother or Me
was suppose to leave
either she gave birth
and claimed her life
or I would meet
the after life
but we are here today
but one of us is
so very sick
it appears its time to let her go
my dear mother God kept you
here for one reason or another
but as time goes on
i grow strong while
i see yor body's
Decay and all the
Inner pain
I cant help but think if that ONE
Should have been ME.........
