Mother don't tell me you're okay when you're not.
Share me your sorrow I know you're hurting.
Don't shut me away from your feelings.
Tell me your worries, your anger, your pain.
Share me your stories, your hope, your wishes.
Mother don't try to protect me too much by hiding.
I'm hurt with your hurting.
I'm hurt with all the things you keep from me.
I'm hurt when you laugh and pretend you're fine.
I'm hurt figuring out how you must be feeling.
Mother it KILLS me the fact that you're hurting.
