Mom’s Embrace

I watched you walk away
A split image
No more than that
A view of…..
The child you were
The boy you are
The teenager you will be
To the man you become.
In that moment
My heart swelled
With love
With motherly pride
And I realized
The fights we have
The life we have
It is one unique to us
One we have crafted
Together.
I may not be a proper mom
I don’t bake
I use curse words
(Not naive…..
You have heard them before)
I drink
But I am your mother
And you make me perfect.
Son
From the day you were born
To the day that I die
(And beyond….
Like that isn’t creepy)
I vowed to love you
I swore to protect you
To always be your touchstone.
I will always be here
Never worry about that
Even in anger
Know that you can always come
And shelter in mom’s embrace.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

  1. Another mum might bake, never use curse words or touch a drink but that doesn’t make them any better a mum than you! Sounds like you know something a lot of mothers never stop to ponder.
