[Poetry] I Am ... a Daughter

Author:

I am a daughter

I am a daughter
I wonder if my Mother knows
I hear her confused words
I see bewilderment in her eyes
I want to turn back time
I am a daughter

I pretend there is no disease
I feel I must pretend
I touch her cheek
I worry that she does not know
I cry because I cannot fix it
I am a daughter

I understand that she loves me
I say soft words to her
I dream about her better days
I try to stop the tears
I hope that God will mind her
I am a daughter
