Wish I Had A Mother - Poem by Monarchist Oleg

I wish I had a mother, to pat my head and smile at me
I wish I had a mother, to worry over and run to
I wish I had a mother, to assuage me and still my fear
I wish I had a mother, to calm my racing heart and to say it will be fine
I wish I had a mother to debunk my sorrows, and defend my innocence
I wish I had a mother, to guide my hand and steady my feet
I wish I had a mother, to show the world and make proud
I wish I had a mother, not a fairy mother nor a god mother
I wish I had a mother, not a step mother nor a mother figure
I wish I had a mother,
To call my own and call at home
I wish I had a mother, to pray for me and forgive my undoings
I wish I had a mother, to watch me morph and toughen
I wish I had a mother to laugh with on hot Sunday evenings
I wish I had a mother, to be restless over me and shudder when I take dark paths
I wish I had a mother, to kill monsters of the night and sing in the morning
I wish I had a mother, to do all a mother does and more.
I wish I had a mother

    I pray that you accept the situation and wish you also accept the mother figure because she can also assist. Loved reading the poem (Report) Reply
