A Mother's Regret

Love is patient, love is kind
It's quickly chastened by the mind
A never-ending stream of thought
That commands me to do all I ought

Life is action, life is work
Forget the quest, keep up the search
Success is just around the corner
Ignore the strain, you're getting warmer 

Bosses happy, bellies full
Priorities straight - thats the rule
No room for loving, living, being
Much less any kind of dreaming

Children grow and shed their wonder 
And all the while I strive and squander
Time and peace and joy and pleasure
Keeping threads of life together
