For my Mom...



 

You screamed...because you loved me

You hit me...because you loved me

You set rules, regulations and...close boundaries

for my future enlightenment...not for control

You carried me...when I could not walk

You fed me...when I could not eat

You were not my enemy

You are not my friend...for freinds come and go

as everything else in this earth

Looking in the mirror...the reflection I see

makes me feel strongly about this

Though the reflection I see is not actually you

it somehow...is you

And you are certainly more than special

because...I only get you

...Once

Jesus words in Luke 14:26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters yes, even his own life-he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
These words from our Lord are very difficult to understand, yet I know he wants me to think about the heavenly place that is waiting for me one day...to keep focused on that and not of this world.

You are so special and your words reach out to shout volumes to all who need to hear great words!

This was a all consuming piece of work and I thank you for sharing!
We all have a "Once" in life but I am glad we have second chances too..

God Bless you dear friend!

of His Love, Grace and mercy!

He has a beauty of spirit and now you are beginning to see it in his words. This is so beautiful Joyce and it brought my tears. We just don't get motherhood perfect but I can tell from this poem how much you always loved your children.

A wonderful tribute to a mother... I am sure that all mothers feel that they could have been a better mother at times. That is part of living and growing, but what a pay back it is to have your son feel privileged to look like you.

The sage said: "It is not a crime to get sick, but it is a sinful crime to remain sick."

Blessed are those that seek for medical and spiritual help!

When a human being understands the sublimity and the supremacy of motherhood, the seraphic beings will accompany her/him for life.

Thank you for sharing this treasure "...Once ('Mother's Day'....in August)" shines.

In appreciation,

Joyce,I am a strong believer in nothing just happens, your son who has been in and out of prison is now finding himself, sad but true that it took him going to prison to find himself, but nothing just happens, thank God that he is able to find himself, so be it that he is in prison, better there with a heart beat of sounds, than, well you know, But all praise go to our father, only he knows if this is your sons last trip to the pin, let's just stay in prayer not only for him but all of our young men, May you remain with God, and let your Son know this piece is dynamite. Sorry to have written so much, but it was just touching, I have 3 daughters no sons.

Joyce, In dealing with our past, sometimes we can only hug each other, cry and move on. The one thing we can't do is look back and get angry. Tell your son, I like his work.
