Thank you for letting me be your mom.

Listen to me, you can’t fix people.
Your love won’t make him stop hating his father
and your devotion won’t cure her of her childhood.
All you can do is be there, violets sprouting out
from your ribs, acceptance on your lips, your own
wounds still bleeding and all you can do is be there
and sometimes that’s enough, sometimes that’s everything.
You don’t realize how precious something was until you’ve lost it. Like foolish living beings that humans are, I believed that he’d always be there when I turned around.
Perhaps I only wanted to believe in his smile, the ‘it’s okay’s he whispered to me. I blocked out all the sad smiles he gave me, the little droop of his shoulders as I disappointed him again and again, the tear-filled eyes that refused to let the tears drop.
Yes. I would have continued to live, oblivious to his pains, if he had not left me. ☁
