For My Birthday

My daughter wrote me a song. And sang it. It was beautiful and all I could think was, in spite of all the years she and I have been dysfunctional to one extent or another, she gets that no matter what, I love her. I love that. What a blessing.

Here it is as it was given to me:
Written January 19th 2009, For my Mom

I'm not a bad girl, I've just made some mistakes.
More than I care to count.
I'm growing up and I'm realizing, I'm not as independent as I thought.
I'm on life's never ending road and I don't, don't quite know which way to go,
and I run home into my mother's arms.
I thought I was ready to go out into the world, boy was I wrong.
I start to cry and I tell her that I'm sorry and I won't leave again so soon.
Then she tells me, really reassures me, it's going to be ok. And I say...

I'm not a bad girl, I've just made a few mistakes, more than I care to count.
That leaving home was one of them, I'm sorry, I'm not a bad girl.
In some ways I'm still a child and I'll always be in my mother's heart. I'll always be her little one, her first born, her precious child.
One day I'll grow up and leave but hopefully it won't be anytime soon.
But when I do leave, I know I can always come to you, no matter how big the problem, or how small the issue, I know you'll always be there for me.
You'll be there to tell me, to assure me, it'll be ok
And you'll say,
"you're not a bad girl, you just made a few mistakes and you're stuck on life's never ending road. Well don't worry, I'm here, you're not a bad girl, your are my loving child and I love you,
I love you."
