Happy Mother’s Day, Mom
By a Grateful Son
We have not figured out this riddle down here, Mom:
The mood shifts,
The happy faces,
The lonely times,
The Have Nots,
Hearkens me back to Childhood days with you, Mom:
Boarding house days,
Your home cooking,
Your long work hours,
Your difficult choices,
Your body bruises,
Your reassuring smiles,
Your devotion to God,
Your heart’s charity,
Your devotion to Family.
Your Love was shown in so many ways, Mom:
Through the gentle bedtime caress,
Through the selfless hours of toil,
Through the Faith you never lost,
Through countless heart agonies,
Through days of grievous pain,
Through a tangled life and time,
Through courage and hardship,
Through unimaginable sorrow,
Through all seasons and times.
My wish is that you know my forever Love,
There, where you now abide with God.
There in a safe and sacred dimension,
There in the Love and Grace you sought.
There surely where you can now smile,
There where you watch in milli-seconds,
There where the good and righteous dwell,
There where Mortals can only imagine,
There where Earth’s mysteries are riddles no more,
There I wish to be with you and eternal Love.
In Memory of my departed Mom
