The Mother Within

Today

The Great Shift came

Finally

I’d been waiting and waiting

So many days in so many lives

To finally see

This Softer side

She came to me

Today

Together we wept for The Child That Was

She promised she would not leave

She would take care of me

I still see the little girl

Standing at the front door with the stained-glass

In the too-short white dress

That grandma made

Holding a gift in her hands

With a huge, excited smile on her face

Eyes squeezed in glee

Shaped like little, happy crescent moons

I will be the one she needs

I will be the Empathetic Listener

Guide her, help her, love her

Today

The Great Shift came

And I….

Became a mother.
