A mother's heart


Beyond a child's delighted features
Mirrors the beauty of their soul
Immersed, baptized simple purity
Reflective mom's nurturing heart

Carefree smiles spared of pretense
Inherits mother's fine grace
Like a fledgling brand new saga
Setting sail to find your place

With eyes bright and bedazzled
Please never disguise the face
Of hope and thoughtful caring
Ever adorned by mom's embrace

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I had recently seen a stirring image on the internet depicting mothers and children. Kind of made me feel like thinking about what that relationship is like. Well what the hell do I know I am just a dad. Well I guess I am a son too, but when do we every think about that stuff when we are growing up.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
