Poetry: Mama

Mama where are you?
Do you know I pray for you?
I know you’re not happy but you can be.
I miss the times we had, the memories we created.
I know our relationship has been rocky for some time now
but I’m still your Crystal.
Don’t you see, you can see right through me?
Open your eyes and look how far you’ve come.
You are not a complete failure.
Life is not perfect and neither are you.
But Mama, it’s ok because I still love you…
