I want my first blog post to be about my mom, because she introduced me to the wonderful world of books and literature and poetry.
Although I am no poet, I think this poem I wrote for her some time ago expresses our love better than any other words could.
Sometimes in the middle of a busy day
I find myself wishing for a happy place
A place that will take the hardship away
A beautiful, loving, smiling face.
Sometimes in the middle of a happy moment
I find myself wanting to share the fun
To hear that voice make a silly, funny comment
A laugh from you warm like the morning sun.
Sometimes in the middle of a dramatic sadness
I find myself clinging to only one thread
Through the confusing emotions, utter madness
A comfort that comes from something you said.
Sometimes in the middle of a long afternoon
I find myself needing to rest my head
How sweet to know I will see your text soon
A knowledge that helps me charge ahead.
Sometimes in the middle of my ordinary life
I send a small prayer of gratitude
For the feeling of safety even amidst strife
My mother’s blanket of love ensures my positive attitude
