My Mom

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.

Ma

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

*
