Where are you?
Why did you leave me?
I grew up
Desperately longing for your presence
The days when the pangs of loneliness
Bit into my existence
Leaving me with painful wounds
Of questions I could not answer
Is it that you never wanted me?
Was I a burden, as opposed to a gift?
Why did you leave a five-month old infant?
Helpless and weak.
A union that was meant to last forever
Mother and son bond
Was just but transient
And I grew up with a void
That to this day has never been filled
But its your day today,
And I guess am grateful
For carrying me in your womb
And for the five months we spent,
Happy Mother's day wherever you are.
I'll always love you.
