With each passing day her presence
seems increasingly great,
to my life she delivers balance
without her I dread my fate.
She holds remarkable strength
Yet sacrifices a great deal,
advancing to strenuous lengths
to help me grow and heal.
Before long I’ll be leaving the nest
and worry I’ll get lost,
setting out on my lifelong quest
bombarded by struggle, heartbreak, and frost.
But I will remember my mother’s wisdom
and fight to persevere,
I’ll master her tricks and develop a system
and with that I’ll abandon my fears.
To my mother’s embrace I unfailingly return,
in which my love for her will always burn.
