It Really Does Matter

It Really Does Matter

Another Mother's Day

has come and gone

no word from the two I've born

no text, no call

no card or bouquet at all

makes me sad

and tears do fall

they are better than this

they really are

but without a man to mentor

they've failed the biggest test of all

The man, my husband

once yelled

 when asked why?

"Don't look at me. You're not my mother."

then the tears did fall

each year the pain does lessen

from this sharp arrow to the heart


maybe anon

they'll truly understand

and be better champions

to the little ones

and the women that make them
