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.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
