I wish I told you

I wish that I told you
For all that I have done
My failings etched in stone
Imperfect is no one
All you ever told me
Failings I look upon
Misspent youth forgotten
A truth of what’s begun
Simple hope delivered
A penance I do wait
Despite this bible held
I cling to what I ain’t
Push forward my mother
Testify in her name
My mistakes brilliantly
Are mine alone to make
Mama what I miss most
The quiet of your heart
Your arms wrapped around me
When I fear mine won’t start
So I rest my weary
Take patience my sweet girl
In sunset slowly drift
A final lullaby
