In my mother's eyes


In my mother's eyes I see my hero I know fear is far at bay In her eyes I feel protection In her smile I see my face Cause she has loved me first before anybody else She carried me till the ninth month so very close to heart She breathed life into my lungs held my hand within her palms showed me guidance in every way made me who I am today In my mother's eyes I see my hero I know fear is far at bay In her eyes I feel protection In her smile I see my face Her arms are always open so I can curl within For here I''m always special without my need to win Her soul ever a rainbow in hues of humankind For she carries no prejudice amongst coloured and white In my mother's eyes I see my hero I know fear is far at bay In her eyes I feel protection In her smile I see my face Our days ,lunchbox of memories filled with tender loving care Past nights,eternal bookmarks of those fingers playing gently with my hair I know one time I 'd have to wake up in a world of all alone In the stars I have to find her cause mama won`t be home In my mother's eyes I see my hero Knowing fear is far at bay In her eyes I feel protection In her smile I see my face

    This poem is so graceful and simple at its core. I have a piece on here called"And the Word is..." I lost my mom when I was 18. I feel her more every yr as I get older. Thank you for this wonderful piece :)

    I love this picture of your mom. My mom is my hero as well. She is gone since 1997, I wrote one for her called Lillian ;} I also think " Echoes Of The Soul " collaboration is very nice too ;}

    *cries* This is such a beautiful piece. It fills me with such longing and emotion because my mom was the opposite of this. You are so lucky to have such a wonderful relationship with yours. I hope you realize just how lucky you are. I strive to be this mother for my boys.

    I am sure your mom is a loveliest person, and that she adores you the same way you adore her. Many sweet wishes to both of you, to be always happy and together. :) G.
