Hands up
All those who can tell their mums anything
All those who know that nothing will break their relationship with their mums.
All those who are never wanting for a shoulder to cry on.

Oh look!
Iím the only one with my hand up.

Hands up.
All those who trust their mums implicitly.
All those who still feel like they feed each day from their mumís own self, wisdom and love.
All those whoís mum is always there.

Oh look!
Iím the only one with my hand up.

All the time,
I am supported by your love, your time, and your inner most being.
You led me to follow Him, who died for me.
You are still holding my hand,
The umbilical cord was never broken.
We are still bonded.
You are half of me.
You are always there.

Thanks Hannah. I'm a little unclear why you are the only one with your hand up. But I liked the images and the thread of trust running from you to your mum ... to God.

it is always good to know we are not alone and can depend on Him.

I'm guessing your in Britain? Australia?

My mum is in her eighties. This article made me think backward a few years.

Great writing!

The umbilical cord was never broken - lovely connection to your mum and to Christ. Blessings.

Just to clarify things, I wrote this poem about an experience I had in class recently. We were discussing a book which had a very close family in it. My teacher said something along the lines of 'I wonder how many of you still feel that you have this relationship with your parents.' I looked around and I was the only one with my hand up.
