Mother, I want to once again
sleep with my head
in your lap..
And I need you
to caress my hair
with your fondling hands.

I know that I have
out grown your lap,
But once again
do hold me against your bosom
And place a gentle kiss
on my forehead,
as if I were
still a child !

Call me like you called me then,
protect me and pamper me
Mother, I know I’m grown today,
Yet the child in me
Comes alive with frozen tears..
Every time I am scared,
Your lap is my little haven !!

    So short, so honest and so real. It reminds me so much of my work and life, and I appreciated it so. Sincerely, Nancy
