Lifetime Of Love

As a baby,
I took a nap
On my mom's
Warm, squishy lap.

As a toddler,
I got whiny.
Mom distracted me
With keys so shiny.

As a kiddo,
My mom was stern.
"No" on repeat
So I would learn.

As a teen,
I got impudent.
Mom redirected
Without incident.

Now I'm an adult
With kids of my own.
When I look back
I have to groan.

How could I have been
So hard on Mom?
Thank goodness her love
Was steady and calm.

Happy Mother's Day!
