comfort ~

i AM the
glow from the full moon
rising over the ocean
sharing a reflection for all to see the soft ripples
of the sea~
giving light to the crashing wave
as it heads to the shoreline
lighting the way for the lost and lonely soul
sailing alone
finding their way home~

my sweet baby....(11) was home today with the stomach virus that i had a few days ago.  oh, what a sad thing it is for me to see her so sick and not be able to do anything for her to make it go away.....  one thing i do know is that when i'm sick like that, i want my made me miss her even more a few days ago.  there's a certain comfort that only a mom can give when we are sick.  i remember it well.  so today, i am grateful that i could be there for mine to rub her back and sit with her on the bathroom floor with wet rag in hand for her sweaty forehead and neck.  now, she is resting quietly in my bed and on the mend after a long, grueling day....knowing that i will always be there for her when she needs me.

  1. Your poetry is beautiful and it pulls at my heartstrings. And your jewelry is lovely, as well!


  2. I hope your baby girl is feeling better. I relate so much to what you wrote. No matter how old you get, you still want your Mom, huh?
