A special letter to my late mother & to all mothers who have left behind loved ones.
|"A real mother is the most wonderful person in the world, She's the angel voice that bids you good night, kisses your cheek, whispers, "Sleep tight" ..........Your Mother & Mine- Peter Pan |
Dear Mum when darkness threatens to overwhelm me and when times get harder I wonder how you felt when you held me in your loving, eager arms. I wonder how your day was when I cried my way into the world to be a part of your life. I wish I knew right there and then what life had in store for you and me.
Dear Mum I wish you could hold me now and hush my tears away. Mum I think about you telling me all the secrets of life and guiding me through the bumpy roads of womanhood. I wish you could tell me how I made you feel when I looked at you with my toothless baby smile. I wish there was a way for me to hear you laugh over a story I told you. I really need you to see the good in me when no one else does. I wish you were here to shield me from all that is evil and harmful like you always did.
Dear Mum I dream about the warmth of your bosom under my weary head, how the softness of your arms belied their true strength. I want to smell the motherhood in you that I never did from a missed opportunity.
Dear Mum I always hope that you know all this and more. And that you are the conscious that lives within me, I pray fervently that you are that same unknown force that protects me from misfortune, and I know your prayers are the only blessings that help me get through every day of my life.
Dear Mum I wish all this and so much more...
