So….. it’s Valentines Day. And as I was playing with Mo and B I felt some nostalgia and was inspired to write a
rap poem. I’m no Emily Dickenson. It’s more along the lines of the haiku I wrote about a tree in 10th grade. But sometimes love has a way of finding the words…
A Mother’s Love
A mother’s love is unspoken.
It’s when I silently watch you sleep
Or when you smile, how my heart skips a beat.
A mother’s love is natural.
You didn’t come with a manual, but somehow I figured it out.
You may question my choices, but my love you never doubt.
A mother’s love is comforting.
When you fall, my kiss is mightier than a drug.
When you lose the big race, nothing compares to my hug.
A mother’s love is unselfish.
I advocate for you when you might not understand.
I sacrifice knowing it will make you a better man.
A mother’s love is eternal.
