Eternal Mother

You are the smile
that makes my lips
quiver
The tears I shed
just by watching you
from across the room.
My voice is in you
and I will command you
to echo it out with
Love
Kindness
Truth
Understanding
Just as I gave you
Your life
Mine grows within you.
You will be forever
My best friend
My Champion

Do not dwell on mistakes I have made
forge your own
And know my sons
Your mistakes have no consequences
On the true love of your mother
