A Mother’s Work Is Never Done
There are people, we cannot replace,
debts we can never repay,
times only we remember.
I recall your losing more than could be given,
giving more than could be repaid,
more times, than can be remembered.
My dreams are bountiful,
your misgivings fueled my desire to succeed,
your patience sustained me through adversity.
I always strived to do the same.
When that which we had seems forever lost,
I often look to the evening sky
for a glimpse of the brightest star.
It assures me,
a mother’s work is never done,
and my journey, has just begun.
