In My Mother's Eyes

In my mother's eyes I see my hero
I know fear is far at bay
In her words I feel protection
In her smile I see my face

Because 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 words I feel protection
In her smile I see my face

Her arms are always open
so I can curl within
For her I'm always special
Without my need to win

Her soul ever a rainbow
in hues of humankind
For She carries no prejudice
amongst the black and white.

In my mother's  eyes I see my hero
I know fear is far at bay
In her words 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 her fingers playing  gently with my hair.

I know one time I'll wake up
in a world of all alone
In the stars I'd have to find her
because mama won't be home.

In my mothers eyes I see my hero
knowing fear is far at bay
In her words I feel protection
In her smile I see my face.






Not for the contest  , but for those interested  there is a contest about mum by Francine Roberts.

    I believe most childen love their mothers. Mine has left this earthly misery and I still miss her though now I'm very high up in the queue for the great beyond. I loved the way you repeated that first stanza, but the phrase that really hit me is "lunchbox of memories". Great poem.

    I can tell that your mother meant the world to you, and it shows ... a very sincere dedication to Mom. Your third to last was the most sentimental stanza for me with the "lunchbox of memories" ...

    Lovely dedication. I really enjoyed the imagery: "hues of humankind and lunchbox of memories" - those ones particularly. Amazing! It's always delightful to read your work.

    She must be one grand lady. She turned out such kind and loving daughter. Yes I'm with Tom, you have to sing it now : )

    Nice tribute char. You have a repeating refrain. Is this meant to be a song?
