mother


broken water bridge under
comfort-er comfort her
as she once me, and wants me
when no one else, all is well
all is well, in the arms of
the hug of
a mother.

To all the moms that wipe noses, butts, knees and such, for all the love and understanding you give to us. Happy Mothers Day!

The Empress said...

Aww, thank you, B.

You know, I told my kids today, even with all the work, I'm still the lucky one, because they were inside, me, I was blessed with birthing them, and then nursing them, and then caring for them.

The work?Pffft. small price to pay for the privilege of being their mother.
