Memories of a Mother

Memories of a Mother
Written on November 4, 2011 – For My Children. 

A Mother’s love survives the storm,
oceans that spilled over,
situations outside the norm,
tornados that still hover.

A Mother is the pulse in her child
coursing through their veins
like a deer in the wild
let loose of its reins.

A Mother’s love is timeless
does not need to be recalled,
eternal without reminders,
the capacity to survive it all.

A Mother’s love is the undercurrent,
of restrictions threatening to hinder it,
taking no beating, despite the torrents,
nothing diminishes it.

A Mother’s love is greater than hate,
survives child-rippers and baby snatchers,
forces of evil, on the Great Mother Debate,
Who dissect a Mother and her matters.

A Mother’s love is nature and nurture,
She is life’s soothing balm,
No human can be complete without her,
She is timeless, she is Mom.

    I’m 34 years old and I never got a hug from my mother or heard her say I love you…

    not all mothers are capable of being what you describe here sad but true!!
