Mother’s Day Reflection – 2019


A journey long
Facing challenges head on
Learning as you go along
Make mistakes, then sing your song


Of those from me
Recognise the family tree
Tuning in, uniqueness see
Encourage, teach them how to ‘be’


Of those who came
From another mother’s frame
Take care, on loan, though all the same
I love and send you back again


Sons and daughters who do not fit
The mould, the world does force a bit
Give space, belonging, wings to flit
About as who they’ll be, as built


Though some will leave
By choice or to eternity
Speak their name, release but keep
The truth that moth’ring does not cease


Will be to leave
Your loves will long, though, still to cleave
To your memory, with sigh and heave
And take you to the one’s they lead
