The birth of a mother
Inside the darkness of womb,
like a closed bud, yet to bloom.
Buried deep in a watery tomb,
my life pulsed, I knew no gloom.
My comfort zone, my cozy home...
love flowed freely...like a cloud I roamed.
Curled up nine months in my kingdom of care,
those moments of share, so precious...so rare...
And then!!... "Oh my God"!
In a sudden,...they cut the umbilical cord!
I was afraid...cried aloud for aid...
A gleam of light I found all around.
I no longer felt safe and sound.
A stranger unknown... to her I was shown.
She was so much my own..
My lifeline... she was mine.
Screaming in labor pain,
Still calm she had to remain.
To bring me up...she knew,
She could never again complain.
That day "we" were born together..
That day,.. I gave birth to my mother.
