another poem for my kid - and the first poem for NaPoWriMo 2019
I’ve been too harsh little one,
too harsh
and I don’t mean it
but I stick with it
sleepily in the dead of night
at the very edge of my limits
and when you have none,
but that’s not your fault
I’m so sorry little one
so sorry,
and I snap instead of soothe
when you can’t understand
and it’s not your fault, little one
not your fault.
When what you want, may be what you need,
it’s just a shame I’m never sure
from one night to the next
but that’s not your fault
so please don’t take it
as gospel or given.
I’ve been too harsh, little one
I’m too harsh.
You forgive me everyday
or forget, who’s to say,
greet me with the love she says I deserve
even when I push too hard
and am too harsh.
