Searching for love

He met this girl, who seemed to have it all – caring, loving and pretty
They soon started dating; and things began to develop fairly quickly
Although he always searched for love, this just hit him by surprise
They spent hours talking and went for long walks outside
He’d kiss his girlfriend goodbye before they would depart every night
And when his mother would kiss him he’d move away in a flight
Strange how that the love he had searched for in a stranger
Would never compare to the love of his mother
But he’d still push her away and she’d continue to care for him
love him, forgive him and wish the best for him
He’d come home late at night and like usual his mother would be up waiting
Her spirit would lift and her face would brighten the moment she’d hear him entering
He and his girlfriend would go out to the cinema and for nice meals
He’d hand his mother a bit of cash “here mum, use this to the pay the bills”
As if she bore him in her womb those 9 months for a bit of money
She never asked for anything, but at times this widow longed for her sons company
You’d often hear him speaking to his girlfriend, with a gentle tone
But shouting and swearing at his mother was something to which he was prone
From the moment he was born she would do anything to protect him
For his happiness she’d be willing to sacrifice her own limbs
And there he was, trying to get away from her at any opportunity
He thought his girlfriend was beautiful but failed to see his mother’s beauty
Beautiful is maternal love that it is forever-eternal
But how very sad is the Childs love for his mother that it is somewhat conditional
Like usual, he came home late one night and found his mother on the sofa sleeping
“Mum go to bed” but she didn’t wake, so he nudged her but realised she wasn’t breathing
Pale faced, still-bodied laying there the same way she’d spent her last moments, alone.
She died that night whilst waiting for her son to come home
Strange is human nature that we take our blessings for granted
And only when it’s gone we realise all the wrong that we did
Whilst searching for love he forgot about his mother
Now, he spends his days searching for the love from his mother..
