You Are My Poem



 ...from a mother to her daughters.
This poem does NOT exclude sons:)

You are my poem
Of laughter and longing
Of having and holding
And slow letting go

You are my poem of
Learning and teaching
Of bowing and reaching
Of lingering…oh!

You are my poem of
Hunger and hurting
And heart overflowing
With more-than-enough

You are my poem
Of precious existence
Wrapped up in one 
little 
word 
called
Love

    1. thank-you:) this is a poem for every mother.
      Even after 24 years I am still often unprepared for the requirements and sudden returns of a mother's love!
