To My Mother

Cry of indignation

My first sound was a cry of indignation that we should no longer be as one

You heard me well and in all my days

You have shared with me In my various frustrations

You have given of your abundant self

To me - I have never wanted, I lacked for nothing

You have shared my pain and my outrage

Together we have tasted the bitterest fruits

And made of them our own celebration

I have hurt you in unspeakable ways, still, you are beside me

You have given me life and courage

And the one certain treasure I have on this earth:

I will always be your daughter

      It's amazing what mothers do and how wonderful it is that you recognize it. Thanks for sharing.

      Awwww....I love this one. It's hard to beat the love of a mother for her child. Nice job of capturing the very essence of maternal love.

      I echo epigramman's comment. This was truly lovely. I miss both of my parents but have such good and happy memories.

      epigramman 6 years ago very lovely and heartfelt indeed ....and we are the lucky ones to have had this great love in our lives, perhaps the greatest and most unconditional love of all - as I can attest to that because my mum was my best friend (as was my dad too) regrets now even though I am on my own - just fond and happy memories - and I am who I am today because of my parents....
