As mother’s day approaches, we all can reflect on how amazing our mothers are. For those of you that have children, we tend to be hard on ourselves on our ability to “mother”. We are our worst critics… Remember to always give yourself a basket of grace. I adore my mother, she is a testament of strength and has a heart full of gold. She has always put others before herself (sound familiar)?? In dedication to this amazing woman, I thought I would write a poem to capture my thoughts.
A Letter to My Mom
As a babe, I look up at my mom and see her blue eyes.
They are beautiful and bright.
The love radiates and flows.
A love that cannot be explained, unconditional.
A bond that is everlasting and shared by two.
Over the years, the eyes change – brought by love, hope, heart ache and pain.
The lines and creases begin to show.
The lines define the moments in time where there was much happiness and sometimes tears.
She is strength, she is life, she is warm, she is a fighter and she defines love.
She has helped me most to grow.
She has helped me through my life and my “lows”.
She feels my pain when I hurt, and over time as I grow, I feel her hurts too.
We are one; the bond can never be undone.
She healed my wounds when they were deep, she has whispered sweet words as a child to me when I sleep.
We share a bond, that is so strong.
All through the years, I know this much is true, I have become the woman I am today because of you.
You are my mother – a women of strength, determination, living with your heart and soul.
I adore you.
