Wishing all the mommies and mommies-to-be a very happy and relaxing Mother's Day!
In honor of Mother's Day, I present you all with this touching poem about a mother's strong and lasting love for her children. I think it's essential for all children, young and old, to remember to cherish their mothers while they still can. Never take her for granted.
—for my children
I see her doing something simple, paying bills,
or leafing through a magazine or book,
and wish that I could say, and she could hear,
that now I start to understand her love
for all of us, the fullness of it.
It burns there in the past, beyond my reach,
a modest lamp.
