(A Mothers day poem)
((For my Mom))
Borrowed breath of brand new life.
Poured out love in labored strife.
Weary warrior of whispered nights.
Nursing long to faint night-lights.
Harking healer of tearful cries.
Dancing muse of lullabies.
Tender arms, firm in hand.
Held in place to help me stand.
A fixed firm tree in a broken land.
Teacher true who taught to seek.
Lips I learned from how to speak.
Encouraged me to step and walk.
The ears that long to hear me talk.
Selfless servant like no other,
Daughter, sister, Woman, mother.
