My Mom is the Bestest!

  • I asked for strength that I might rear her perfectly;
  • I was given weakness that I might beg for more treats.
  • I asked for good health that I might rest easy;
  • I was given a "special needs" mom that I might know nurturing.
  • I asked for an obedient mom that I might feel proud;
  • I was given stubbornness that I might feel needed.
  • I asked for compliance that I might feel masterful;
  • I was given a human that I might laugh.
  • I asked for a companion that I might not feel lonely;
  • I was given a best friend that I would feel loved.
  • I got nothing I asked for,
  • But everything I need.
