Tomorrows have come and gone,
so many days have passed.
You had been walking down
such a strange and twisted path.
Life has a way of grabbing hold
and slapping you in the face.
Every twist that has come along,
has landed you in your place.
Life had always looked so simple
from behind your schoolgirl eyes.
Now you have children of your own,
things change, you have realized.
With everything you have been handed,
you’ve managed to still find your way.
A wife you may not be anymore,
but you grow as a mother everyday.
A far cry from where you started
to where you have finally arrived.
Lessons you’ve learned the hard way,
hard as they were, you have survived.
