~Eternal Path~


.
Once upon a time
When all declared to make a day
A special day
Titled A mother's Day
Brought in with immense appreciation
Towards a mother's love
How can a day be enough?
Prose and poetry won't explain
"Motherhood"
As wrapped in my womanly spirit
Standing with nothing but a soul of a mother

.

A spring is not just a water ripple
Its a wrapping of countless water drops
Uniting what the eyes can see: A Spring
Being a mother
Does not begin on sprouting seed
Is a spring that gives birth to a river
Underwater oozing to life
A lifetime temperament
Through laughter and pain

.

Through climbs and falls
Motherhood is eternal path
So here we are
Celebrating
Those who were before us
Those who mothered us
Then alighted us as seeds
Subsequently as mothers
As we fill our child's pages


.

Then on our after life ride
Sheltering our child from above
And no matter how grown our child can be We remain an endless mother

That gets to the gist of it all right. And it's tough for people who don't get enough of that. The few children on my rosters whose moms had abandoned them were among the most depressed I've known. Fortunately it's more common to be able to take a mother's love for granted.

I love this. I think you did motherhood justice with this poem. I did think of writing something on mothers on Mother's Day, but the subject is too large for me it seems.

Beautiful poem. Once having a child it is amazing how much more I appreciate everything my mother did for me. I just wish she was still here for me to tell her.
