Mom, you were never there for me.. You never braided my hair for me.. Did you even care for me? Was that why you weren't there for me? Somebody else gave to me, what you took away from me. Life has been a struggle without you there to cuddle. I've been living with these thoughts, because you made me pay the cost. I've learned that life is hard, and I've earned the better part. You were never there for me, you never braided my hair for me. But someone helped me spare your loss, the one you thought you had to toss. I love you with all my heart, Mom, but you're the one that dealt my cards.
