Lee Degnan Poems
A Mother's Love For Her Child
You are my child,
given to me by some miracle
that I cannot comprehend
I was worthy of.
You've come and blessed my life.
You are my world.
Whatever I've known as my own
now shared willingly
and freely with you.
You've come and opened my heart.
You are my hope,
in a world that's so unforgiving;
in your eyes I see promise
of better things yet to come.
You've come and filled me with joy.
You are my happiness
personified, yet lit even brighter
and with unimaginable beauty
created in God's light.
You've come and saved my ...
...and all I can do is sit here
home so cold and empty without you
yet so tense when you chose to be
time for you to self implode
reek havoc, have your fill at
just spewing anger at all of us
when we've waited for so long for you
to be here
