For My Mother


For My Mother (by Randyjw; April 3, 2016)


The beautiful piece of your heart and life

which you opened to another

touches them in ways in which

it always seems to matter


The wellspring of my eyes is turned

in seeing that you bother

Consider what I’ve seen and learned

The yearnings of a mother


Your days of toil upon the floor

to clear each path before

the soil from our wayward path

and what will lie in store


The dreams you set into our mind

we never leave behind

and when in time we reach the line

and take our turn in kind


Each small and heartfelt victory

the labors of your youth

Through days of untold hardships

you rebirth our lives anew.



Thank you, Mom.


a special thank-you to the inspiration found in the lovely words of poetess, Diana, whose inspiring work gave me cause to leave and create my own inspired work, above. Thanks, Diana. View her work at:
