I LOVE YOU MUM

A letter to my mum: I’m sorry

It’s Mother’s Day! So it’s only fair that my mum finally gets some blog love too.I always knew that my mum loved me. But I don’t think I could ever appreciate how much until I had a daughter of my own.

Mum, I’m sorry

I’m sorry for the times I didn’t let you sleep at night,
And the times I fought you with all of my might.

I’m sorry for all the tantrums that I threw,
And all the times I threw up on you.

I’m sorry for all of the times I made you cry.
And all the times I left you asking why.

I’m sorry for all of the shitty nappies,
And all those times I refused to say please.

I’m sorry for all the things I destroyed,
And all of the times I made you annoyed.

I’m sorry for all the times that I made you feel guilty,
The times that you sacrificed things to look after me.

I’m sorry for all the times I made you shout,
And gave you an extra thing to feel guilty about.

I’m sorry that I grew up way too fast,
That my baby years just didn’t last.

I might not hold any of these things in my memory,
But I know that it happened because it’s happening to me.

Now that I have a daughter and I’m a mum too,
I finally see all of the things that I put you through.

So I’m sorry for all for all the times I made you sad,
But the fact that you’re my mum makes me so glad.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and continue to do.
I’m sure that I’ll be a good mum too,
Because I learned from the best – I learned from you.

xXx

PS. I’m also sorry that now I’m all grown,
And that I’ve finally stopped destroying your home,
That you now have the same troubles with my baby,
I bet you wish you never said that you hoped my child would turn out like me!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums reading! I hope you have a fantastic day.

  1. Fab poem as always Teri! I think we could send this to all mums and it would be pretty accurate! #TheSatSesh

  2. Very loving poem, sweet to read 🙂
    In my case, being a parent has been an eye opener in a different way, as I’ve realised how differently I see parenting compared to my mum. My child is my first priority at all times, and our life is in many ways directed by our child’s needs. Whereas I was more of a tag-along kind of child, who didn’t really affect my parents’ everyday life much. So I don’t think I need to say ‘sorry’, but in a way, I wish I did x
