Happy Mother’s Day Poem

Before I was myself you made me, me – with love and patience, discipline and tears – then bit by bit stepped back to set me free, allowing me to sail upon my sea, though well within the headlands of your fears.

Before I was myself you made me, me – with dreams enough of what I was to be, and hopes that would be sculpted by the years – then bit by bit stepped back to set me free, relinquishing your powers gradually to let me shape myself among my peers.

Before I was myself you made me, me – and being good and wise, you gracefully, as dancers when the last sweet cadence nears, bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

For love inspires learning naturally – the mind assents to what the heart reveres.

And so it was through love you made me, me – by slowly stepping back to set me free.
