Regarding multiple personalities...and kinda hard to believe.
However, I've learned - first-hand - that it's true.
And I learned it the hard way...so I'll pass it on to you.
At first she was "<i>Mommy"</i>, who was ever so kind,
Overlooking my faults , as if she were deaf, dumb and blind.
Then at night she'd sing softly, "Shhh....don't make a peep,
'Cause you'll wake up your Poppa who is fast asleep."
But as we both got older she turned from Mommy to <i>"Mom</i>",
She'd shout, "Don't slam the door, dear, It sounds like a bomb!"
Or <i>"Turn down that boom box, you're rattling the house,</i>
and you're not going anywhere in that low cut blouse!"
So the first chance I got - I walked out the door to get a taste of life
Becoming a pauper and a poet first, then a mother and wife.
."Shhh.....May I tell you a secret, just between you and me?
I wish I'd known my<i>" Mother</i>"...in her last and final personality."
I know I'd have loved her as she loved me.
And yet I didn't have the patience to wait and see
Regrets will be with me until the day I die...
"Rest in peace, dear Mother...and don't you cry."
