I'm still not convinced that you were born
maybe from open heavens you came down
with glorious wings of genuine love and kindness.
Let's talk about patience, nearly a year in you
I've never felt any less of your presence.
Pain and struggle, you bear with every hurdle
The first step I made and felt down
I saw your hand and reached out to it--
there's no safer place.
If I said I love you it won't equate
because you're bigger than love
You're a marvelous mystery I can't solve
All the respect and trust you truly deserve
Yes, we're all humans but you---
You're a mother!
