Singing for an Angel
For my mom, who never really understood me but loved me with all her heart.
I hope that now you have some distance, Mom, you can understand why I had to leave - why I had to save my own life before I could think about saving yours.
I’m glad I was able to do that at least. Those six years we spent fighting diabetic comas, a systemic MRSA infection, renal failure, and amputations were some of the hardest and most revealing of my life. Can you see it now too? Can you see how much I loved and still love you? I just couldn’t be the daughter you’d hoped I would be and still be me.
This lullaby is for you - for all the nights you sat at the edge of my bed, rubbing my back and singing until I could finally fall asleep.
I LOVE YOU.
