She never said a word
When I didnít go to college like my mother wanted me to,
she never said a word, but I knew what she thought.
When I married the man of my dreams I knew my mother disagreed.
But she never said a word, but it was often written on her face.
When my husband and I decided not to have a child, she was bitterly disappointed.
But she never said a word, but I knew it tore her heart.
When my mother died last week, she held my hand and looked at me as if she loved me.
But she never said a word, but I knew she did.
