An apology to Mom

P. Jefferson Chaulk

A family's black sheep seeking forgiveness for a misspent youth before his mother dies.
It couldn't have been easy, seven kids in all
All wanting your attention must have drove you up the wall
Most families have their black sheep, for ours it was me
Obeying rules was just for fools and I needed to be free

I've done my share of drinking and I toked a time or two
fighting, lying, stealing were all things I used to do
The late-night scenes and tight blue-jeans, lovers by the score
While momma prayed I'd change my ways I prayed to God for more

Momma, I'm so sorry for all I put you through
All the heartaches and the sleepless nights, not knowing what to do
But there's one more thing I need from you before the day you die
Momma please forgive me for all the tears I made you cry

A little old and grayer now and better days you've seen
Life hasn't been so kind to you as to others it has been
But no matter what you're going through or what may come your way
Remember that I love you Mom and I just want to say
