A Mother’s Song – Poem

A Mother’s Song

I marvel at your tiny toes,

Touch my lips to your little nose.

With every line, every wrinkle

Perfection makes my eyes twinkle.

I’ll seek to push bad from your space,

But I’m flawed with a shield of lace.

My embrace, a song of promise,

A shelter bringing forth calmness.

A lullaby, forever I’ll sing,

Peace and joy may this life bring.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – This week Eugenia gave us the prompt Dreamcatcher as well as the photo above. She said to go where the prompt leads you. A dreamcatcher is meant to filter dreams, catching the bad and letting in the good. That idea led me to think how a mother wishes to do the same for her child.

I hope you enjoyed my poem.

With a grateful heart,

Welcome new friends. I'm Heather, a homeschooling mama raising three children alongside my husband. I love to walk our two dogs, photograph nature, and write poetry.

I enjoy writing about our homeschool adventures, as well as nature and sharing recipes. My heart is grateful for my family, our homeschool, our friends and homeschool community, as well as the nature around us.
