Letter to My Mother


While you slump, gray and exhausted,
I will hold the vision of you
Strong and green,
Lively and vital.
Not trudging through sludge,
But twirling in a merry dance.
Not heaving and dragging weakly,
But singing, striding through
Shafts of morning sunlight.
I would shelter you from pain.
I would rock you gently into
Restful, healing sleep.
I would cool your fever and
Wash your body clean.
I would stand at your side until
You regain your balance.
I would smile into your eyes
And tell you how strong and
Beautiful you are,
Until you remember it is true.
Oh beautiful, strong, courageous Mother,
You were always there for me.
I am here for you.
