A  Mother's  Love

(free verse)

You could put YOUR son's name here (see below)

 

Before you were born, I dreamt of you...

And how handsome you’d be someday...

I knew how you’d look before you came..

So I waited patiently for that day.

 

When they brought you to me somehow I knew ...

Life would never be the same...

Had to look at you and study you...

Before I gave you your name.

 

It needed to be just right for the son I’d raise...

I thought of Stephen as "someone strong"...

And after I’d held you for the longest time...

I knew I wasn’t wrong.

 

As you grew up, your will WAS strong.

Sometimes days were a "challenge" for me...

There was joy amid the hard times...

I prayed your strong will would ...eventually set you free..

 

I tried to teach you about sensitivity...

To have love and respect for yourself...

To be proud of a job well done...tough to do when I looked at you...

It was like butting heads with MYSELF!

 

Often times when two people are alike....

A battle of WILLS ensues... (though we laughed, cried and got angry)

I knew eventually, that you would walk...

In those big ole " grown up" shoes.

 

There were times when I was so lonely for you...

While you had to be on your own...

To figure out as a man, for yourself...

What the true meaning was of "home."

 

Home really IS where the HEART is Steve....

Not just where your house might be.

And HEART is where you find support and LOVE...

The joy I felt was unsurpassed when you returned to me.

 

You’ve grown so much  and as I now look UP at you...

Love and pride (deep inside) are what I feel ...

We've worked  at trust and understanding...

With the heart and love we both have...time has helped us heal.

 

Whatever you do my Dearest Son... and wherever you may go...

There’s a Mom who will always love you for who you are.

You may stumble and fall as we all do at times...

But I’ll always be there for you, though near or far.
