Voice of Silence

Posted on Updated on

Ever so gently,

I will lay you down.

Down deep in the cold hard ground.

I will cry droplets of love for eternity,

After they separate you from me.

I will kiss your eye lids,

I will brush my fingers across your cheeks.

A flower will be laid at your stone,

From this moment until there are no more.

And though I turn away,

As the dirt is laid.

I will never forget,

What transpired here today.

Saying goodbye,

Isn’t a choice.

But I will give your silent heart,

A voice.

Journey of Motherhood

Posted on Updated on

I stand before you, a woman,

A mother.

Your mother.

I carried you within my innermost being,

For so long.

I waited,

I was patient,

I was impatient.

I knew you before you knew you.

I still know you.

I am the part of you that will never go.

I will give you everything.

My heart,

My soul,

The wisdom of a lifetime.

And you will reject it.

For you are a child,

My child.

Rebellious,

And stubborn.

I will be nothing to you.

Until you too,

Become a mother.

And then you will see,

You will understand,

And it will complete you.

Emileen's Oleander

I put in an oleander underneath my daughter and son’s windows – Emileen chose white, Nicolas chose red. This is the first bloom we have gotten so far this spring. So lovely!
