What Did You Do To Me That Day?

What did you do
To me that day?
You taught me the
Most valuable lesson
Of my life
But I was too young.
Just a child.
It was too early.

You taught me that
In this life I have to
Take care of myself.
You taught me I have
To look out for others.
That to protect the ones I love
Can mean self sacrifice,
Putting their needs
Above mine.
Hide my own feelings.

But I was too young
I misunderstood.
I thought this meant
I couldn’t ask for help
When I needed it....
If I couldn’t ask you
Then there was no-one.

My mother, by your actions
I learnt all this in
One short minute.
A child’s interpretation,
To stay with me
For the rest of my life.
