Sacraficies...Gifts From The Heart

Please rethink your past...open up your heart and mind

Do you really think I was that unkind?

Did I play favorites or was age the stage

I understand... I went through the same rage

But my older brother was mentally challenged

Yet still I felt slighted and damaged.


Till one day I had children of my own

What you see in youth is not the whole picture shown

Your memory deceives and plays games

You remember the bits to blame


As a mother I gave gifts from the heart

Sacrifices right from the start

Only some of those you saw

Or maybe you just remember the flaws

We are all human and perfection is rare

I know I'm very far from there


Someday I hope you'll understand

When you have your own children in hand

And they come at you with anger and spite

That what you did wasn't right

Your mind will flashback to this day

Where my heart was betrayed

For I thought I gave gifts from the heart

Sacrificing right from the start
