A Mother’s Words – A Poem

*For my Wonder Mom

I remember hearing your voice

when I was young.

You were always speaking to me,

soft flowing words

that would reach out to me,

wrap me in an embrace

and hold me close.

I remember feeling protected

when I was older.

I was trying to figure out

who I was meant to be.

You told me to be

proud of who I was

regardless of what others said.

I remember feeling loved beyond words,

even when we were far apart

from each other. All it would take

was the sound of your voice

to feel at home, to feel at peace.

Your words have always found me.

I am so proud

to have you as my mother

and I am honoured every day

to be your son.
