Being A Mom

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister


BEING A MOM

The house is untidy from window to door,
Marks on the walls and food on the floor.

The washing's unwashed
and the dishes are too,
There's scum in the bathroom
And fat on the stew.

There are toys in the passage
And under our feet;
The garden's a jungle
When seen from the street.

So what have I done, then
To earn my repose?
To just look around me
You'd say no-one knows!

I've held a small hand
As her first steps she took.

I've made animal noises
As we read a book.

I've built a mud pie
And admired a snail.

I've rescued the cat
From a grip on her tail.

I've wiped away tears,
And I've listened to tales.

I've used mediation
To get smiles from wails.

So I guess what I've done
Isn't easy to see -

It won't clean the house
And it won't cook the tea.

But if I have helped make a child feel good,
know that she's loved and
that she's understood,
then I know that my work,
though not easy to see,
is just as important as any could be.

PORTRAIT OF A MOTHER

A halo that reflects a life of wisdom, kindness,and caring.

Eyes that sparkle with pride and show how much she believes in you.

Shoulders that have been slept on and wept on and carried a world or two.

Arms that never run out of hugs.

Hands that know just when to hold on and when to let go.

A mind filled with amazing things, from fairy tales to family tails and long-ago stories of you.

A smile that can jump right into your heart and warm you faster than hot chocolate.

A heart of gold that holds more love than you can possibly imagine.
