An afternoon tea

An Afternoon Tea by Ella Montague

The Mom friend


I feel the responsibility for your happiness. 

I pull out the lotion,

The chapstick,

The extra change for your meal.


I want to care for you.

How else would I prove I deserve you?


I’ll give you the advice,

The reminder to drink water,

The hugs that squeeze you with love,

The tough love when no one is honest.

Of Course I’ll take all your problems,

I am your shoulder to cry on.

I am your ‘mom friend.’

I give it all to you because
I want it all for myself
