Mama's...take a bow
Mama's, take a bow...
I am constantly in awe of the love given,
the tears shed and dabbed dry,
the relentless grind of the magic that is the mama path.
And the grace in which you dance down it.
This work we do. It has long hours. Unpaid. Often undervalued.
And yet it is the most important work,
for what we give our children, walks on,
into a far off future to face times
we can only dream of.
And if that future is to be one where
happiness triumphs more than trauma
there is more healing than ailing,
those seeds are planted today.
Those seeds of hope grow from our tone of voice,
our touch and hugs, dancing wild and laughing free,
and letting our children
teach us as much as we teach them.
I think perhaps the only way
to create the world we want to live in,
is to live it, breathe it.
Day by day, seed by seed and hope against hope,
so it will be.
