A mother's love
Wraps around you like the wind,
Invisible, incomprehensible, and inescapable-
Not that you would want to escape
In fact, she is an escape:
A word of advice
A warm embrace
An angel's forgotten cooing
She embodies compassion
And the will to do good.
My mother... Is wonderful
Her smiles and laughs color my vision
I will never forget the feel
Of how precisely she French braids my hair
(though it will only be slept on) .
My mother is warmth,
Smiles, friendship, and
Homemade pajama pants.
My mother is...
Follow the worn stone path
And duck under the low hanging branch
Reach for the heavens however you can;
Climb the fence if you must!
Scrambling among the limbs of the old oak
Is simple and soothing,
Frustrations melt and problems fade
