My life today

A portrait of my life,
I was loved more than
words could say, its the story
of a mothers love, her fear
and determinations.

It tells of promises fulfilled, 
a journey concluded and begun 
with a new house filled with lots
of love in there.

I heard him screaming last night
I saw him crying but I knew how
to make him smile 
I knew how to make
him better.

I was needed and I need them
As when I helped
I felt part of the family.

Sometimes it's hard to distinguish
ends and beginnings.
Conclusions do not always hurt 
and starting afresh may not
feel entirely happy.
Letting go brings peace 
and turns the tide towards 
the future.

But the very purpose
is to revisit where one`s routes lie.
I spend many years not letting
any joy in because I had no child
to share it with.
This fear is different.

Let us pick up all the broken pieces
As the older, I get the more
I have to learn that sometimes
the route of joy is indirect.

The greatest gift there are hands
we can reach and hearts 
to keep us warm,
telling the truth is much harder 
than telling lies.

Things end how they should
I will beg tomorrow and steal
every minute I can get 
to make me see strength.

Each life is a journey 
defined by the turns we take
and the roads we choose 
or which fate chooses for us.

Your my world you can take 
everything I have I will prepare
You for the great game
of life ahead of us. 

Sometimes for people to make
the right choice one must first 
show them the worst choice,
As love has the strength
to protect.

Our deepest desires are never simple 
but the peace we find when they are met 
eclipses even the darkness during that
twilight day.

We can’t stand still because of the world 
keeps turning and every year must 
give way to the next.

There are always new faces 
new tears to shed and new
joy to invest in.

Yet the circle of love is not broken
it expands wherever we go next, 
and you are coming with me
to keep each other safe 
for there is always imperfections 
everywhere.

I am that
Mother.

    Shalom, shalom! Therese, I wish & pray you continue to write. This poem came from your deepest soul ... thank you. I was reading Debbie Duncan, & came across you. Now, both of you are taking time off. Hope you come back -- it is great to have feedback, but I remind myself, "Write for God & yourself first." Still, I am sad when poets go away. shalom of Jesus, the only PEACE giver

    This is an exquisitely poignant write, Therese, so full of deep emotion and struggle and love, and it is always that love we return to - the one force of the Universe that transcends time and physics. It's hard to believe sometimes that we DO get stronger through adversity, but it is just so, and I feel you to be a very strong spirit, (though I don't know you) ... your wonderful words attest. Blessings to you and yours, and thank you for sharing this - I enjoyed it thoroughly! :-) <3

    I like the way this circled back to : I am that mother. An awesome conclusion. You will have to write me and tell me what is going on with you. It's been so long, Therese. I found this one sentence you wrote very interesting to me because for me, the reverse is true!! (telling the truth is much harder than telling lies.)
