You have done so much.
Rest now and be relieved.
Tonight you sleep without a tear
For fear has been replaced,
With grace, and hope, and joyous days.
As your boy plays, in this sheltered home.
Bricks of love
Built from sacrifice.
Of blood and mother’s milk.
Protects him from angry storms
And keeps him warm from the frigid snow.
He grows, then leaves, said his farewells.
You start to dwell, on being alone.
The years have gone by.
You stand and recollect.
Remembering all your past dreams,
Pregnant at eighteen when his daddy left.
But as regrets entered your mind
You heard the chime, from the front door.
Voices burst in.
Their arms are open wide.
With gentleness, you pick up his child.
As your son smiles, and gives a sweet kiss,
This bliss is pure you know that much
That a mother’s touch is all he asked for.
