Mother—in honor of your existence

Mother I honor you

Mother I love you

as I attempt

to remember

the warmth of

your womb

the softness of

your heartbeat

as we connect

as you bring forth

life—the humaness of me

Mother I thank

the Creator for you

and in yours

and my various of moods

of finding the self

you never ceases

to comfort me

you never ceases

to love me.

Happy Mother’s day!
