A Mother's Love
Mothers are irreplaceable,
graced with the seat of honor,
high atop the pedestal of life.
This panoramic view
instills a sixth sense
that rivals the eyesight of an eagle.
I hit the maternal lottery
as I was nurtured and guided through life
by a loving protector,
who silently reinforced my safety,
allowing me to experience the freedom needed
to develop my many talents.
I discovered the essence of maternal love
when I cradled my own babies in my arms,
realizing the magnitude of this
finally, truly appreciating the depth of
my own mother's skills.
I silently chuckle when I hear myself
parroting my mother's words,
when responding to the needs of
my own offspring.
The wisdom I received from "the matriarch",
I impart to my own progeny,
feeling proud and honored to pay it forward.
A mother's love is not a given,
its a special gift from God
That I gratefully receive every day.
