A Mother’s Love
The depths of my life have been marked by moments;
those small instances in time that shine amidst the
chaos; they have left me humbled...embraced
in subtle but everlasting reminders of these
blessings I too often take for granted.
Each breath not promised but given.
Each beautiful sunrise I see.
Each raindrop I taste upon my lips.
Each time I'm able to wrap my arms
around my children and tell
them I love them.
The depths of my soul can be found in blond
hair and blue eyes; in the way his small
hands wrap around my darkest hour and
release the sorrow - as hand-in-hand
we have shared tears and heartache
while walking through faith.
The depths of my heart find rest in those
times I have held him close and sung
lullabies to help him sleep - in those
moments we have laughed together...
even through the stillness of night
when we have laid side-by-side and
talked of Heaven and angels wings.
"Mom, if you get to Heaven first, will you remember me?"
With my hand upon his chest, I remind him that I will
always reside in his heart; how I'll forever be
as close as his next breath and that neither
time nor distance could ever separate us.
"I love you more than my heart" he whispers
before drifting to sleep. As a tear slides down
my cheek, I pull him closer. Another moment
caught in time...another depth within
this life that I will cherish and take with me.
"I love you through the moonlit night..." I
sing softly. "I love you through the sun
shining bright. When my last breath comes
and Heaven I see, I will love you through
eternity. Many things are uncertain but
this I know, until starry days and
August snow, across time and
space my love will transcend.
For a Mothers love...it never ends."
