I guess I thought…

I guess I thought that expectations were clear, that you would be here and always be near.

I guess I thought that this wouldn’t last, that this was ‘grief’ and it would just pass. 

I guess I thought that I needed more sleep, that this was fatigue and not one to keep. 

I guess I thought that I would remain unchanged, that this was a phase that wouldn’t keep causing me pain. 

I guess I thought that I’d stop missing you, that life would keep moving and pulling me through. 

I guess I thought that I couldn’t be wrong, that love would continue to make me feel strong. 

I guess I thought that you were my son, and now I know I’ll always be Mum.
