Mama's Eternal Apron String.-(inspired By-I Need To See You poetlorraine

Updated on April 27, 2010

We are still

attached to that

umbilical cord

that was severed

at birth,

its remnant

remains forever.


We were

all blessed

with a button

to remind us

of just how

precious our

mothers are.


A dimpled

little recess

in our bellies, 

whether an

innie or an outie 

that is the

circle of life.


We come from

our mums and

then we become

like mums,

with children

to raise to be

as good as

our mum was.

Mom is always

with us just

below our heart

about seven to

nine inches or so,

puckered up

like her kisses

used to be.


A constant

reminder of

how close to her

we once were

and always will be.


Take a moment

to touch that

sacred port

that once sustained

you in her womb

and whisper

I love you, Mom.

then clean

the lint out

cause she wasn't

big on lint,

and savor

the memories

that never

grow old.

      This piece is so brilliantly creative ... I will tell you that I have NEVER pictured by belly button as mom's kisses. Hilarious and Sweet at the same time. Thanks for the 'moment.' Love IT!
