For My Love To Show
I don’t mean to tell you what to do
Or say “no” too many times,
I don’t mean to raise my voice
Or read too much between the lines.
I don’t mean to say the wrong thing
Or lose my patience when we are late,
I don’t mean to seem frustrated
When you don’t eat what’s on your plate.
I don’t mean to rush you
When you are putting on your shoes,
I am sorry for all those moments
It feels like you don’t get to choose.
I don’t mean to be stern with you
When I lose you from my sight,
I don’t mean to keep you
From shining your own light.
I just want to do the right thing
And be the best for you,
And sometimes I don’t do things
In the way that I mean to.
What I really mean to do
Is to demonstrate my love,
In my thoughts and my intentions
You are all that I think of.
What I mean to do is to protect you
From any foreseeable harm,
What I mean to do is bring you happiness
When you seem to be alarmed.
What I mean to show you is how blessed I feel
That the universe brought you to me,
All I want is to give you the world
And help you grow into the person you will be.
What I mean to do in every moment
Is to love you as best as I can,
I will always be here for you
Cheering from the stands.
Dear child, as your mother,
I just want you to know,
There is nothing I want more
Than for my love to show.
Share, tag and post to appreciate all the Mothers in this world <3
