MOTHER

MY STRENGTH 
IS EBBING AWAY
A PART OF ME 
HAS PASSED AWAY 

I PLAY THE DIRGE
AND SOME CONCIERGE 
WHO CAN CONSOLE ?
MY SORROWED SOUL
HER GOD SENT LOVE
WAS ALL THAT FILLED MY HEART
AND WHATEVER TRIPPED FROM IT
WAS A REMNANT OF THAT
HOW HER LOVE POURED 
INTO MY HEART
GAVE ME STRENGTH
TO SHARE , TO SACRIFICE
OH ! SWEET MOTHER
IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOU 
I WOULDN'T HAVE KNOWN
CONCERN FOR THE OTHER
                                                                
IT REMAINS FURTHER
TO CHILDREN GATHER
TO POUR A MOTHER'S LOVE
INTO ANOTHER

  2. Mother love is wonderful love, and I agree with Vandana about it being the source of all love.

  5. Neat way of thinking about mother and mothering. I like the giving and reserving of it and then passing it on.

  6. I, too, love the idea of passing the love along. And that your mother taught you "concern for the other".

  8. The ties that bind us. So beautifully expressed. My mother passed away not long ago and I miss her so so much. The passing on of love - so beautiful and such a perfect legacy.
