January drabbles - 12

“I didn’t mean it Mom.”
“I know.”
“I didn’t mean to run too fast
And break the glass
And trip and fall
And knock the tallest cupboard -
All the pretty plates fell down.”
“I know.”
“So why you frowning Mom?”
“It’s not a frown; a falling smile.”
“Can I catch it, please?”
“In a while.”

“I didn’t mean it Mom.”
“I know.”
“I didn’t mean to get home late
And break your heart.”
But fractured love-lines mend.
“When?”
“In the end.”

“I didn’t mean it Mom.
I love you Mom,”
With smiles and love and mending meant,
Eternal and worthwhile.
