My Mother

mother with children

My Mother is the most outstanding woman

I will ever know in my lifetime.

She is of that of a bloomed flower,

She is perfection.

Welcoming any who need food and shelter

Regardless of their of their lack of participation

Or their imperfections

She is unconditional

She forgives

Accepting people at face value

Knowing that they, like spots on a leopard,

May never change

She welcomes them into her heart, spots and all

Welcome them into her life and heart

Asking nothing in return

My Mother was that of a bloomed flower.

She planted many seeds, and a splendid garden grew

For the seeds were planted

For all it takes is a seed, for a flower to bloom

And she, she watered and nurtured many seeds

And an abundant garden grew, and she continued to plant

Never tired nor weary

She was constant, and she remains my Mother.

    Meg – no matter where – when or how someone loves another person – you can hear the truth in their words, the feelings are real – thank you. Sincerely, Nancy
