MAMA

By Amy Berger

Did you do the best you could?
Should I have understood?
My eyes so large in my small head
I did not understand why you saw red
Why didn't you love and cherish me?
I felt lost and lonely ' lost at sea
Now I have four eyes looking my way
I cannot be the same for them I Pray
I do not want mine to feel the pain
That I did then and feel now like so much rain
Falling down from the sky
Welling up from my heart to my eye
Did you do the best you could, mama?
Should I have understood, mama?
