A Birthday

Today is the birthday

of Mother.

My thoughts wander

backward in time…

I am wrapped with her tenderness,

the smell of her love;

Reminded of her soft corners,

how easily my body cradled within hers.

Her abundance of care for me and my sisters,

we thought common.

Now I know the truth

of my blessing:

How she bravely tread into new experiences to be with us;

How she waited so we could shine;

How she fed us with the very blood of her heart.
