For my mom

Though many songs are written of angels
I must add to the empire 
This small hymn to a woman, a champion of life 
Nameless here, but named in all things good and pure
I'll stand beside her work, her artistry astounds the stars 
And all light that is given is humbled in her presence 
Every worry is smoothed away, all tears absolved 
God, let me take her sadness into me and carry it for her
Until I am old, and then I'll have my chance to see her once more 
I am not a religious man, but she brings the divine to me  
And cradles me forever in her selfless, adoring arms 
I love you mother, I love you
I will always love you

    Wow! It takes a certain skill to infuse a poem with so much emotion without making it sound trite or cliched. You have done an amazing job - the language, the imagery. Fantastic! :)

    wow, I would love it if MY Jeremy ever wrote something like this for ME!!! So sweet and very well crafted poem, Jeremy. Not overly sentimental, it's very poetic.

    I'm certain your Jeremy feels just as strongly, does he write poetry, too? I know you might not see this so I'll send some soup mail your way.

    Let me take her sadness and carry it for her....oh Jeremy you are a special young man..and those are words of a heart loved by God..God and religion are not the same thing!!!!!!! Its one on one..religions are man made rules inside buildings in my opinion......
