From a Mother to her Daughter

(Mother's Day)

 

From a Mother to her Daughter


As I held you in my arms, my angel
I was seeing myself born again
A new world unfolded before me -
Resplendent and euphoric


As you clutched to my breast, I cherished,
An eternal bond that was to stay
Through it I let my soul flow
To make you strong and discerning


As I let you walk alone, anxiously I waited
With a little prayer in my heart
That you may not have to confront
World’s ugliest face


When I see compassion and love in your eyes
My heart beams with pride
To see a little mother growing within you
Keeping hope upright


I am waiting for you to grow, my angel
To pass on the baton of motherhood
And hold that little joy in my arms
And relive motherhood again.

    Lovely poem. You expressed beautifully a mother's love and care for her new-born, and when you say "That you may not have to face the World's ugliest face", you epitomized a mother's true unblemished love for her child. Well done.
