~ I Am The One ~

I am the one who sings you to sleep
In my heart
I will always have peace,
I am the one who dries all your tears
In my arms
I hold you without fear.

I am the one who helps you learn
In my eyes
You do nothing wrong,
You are good, kind and loving to me,
When the time comes
I will set you free.

I am the one who gave you your heart
I did not give you birth
Yet I played a part,
I am the one you call mom
I helped you feel
That you belong.

You may not be my blood
But you are my very soul,
I am the one
Who kisses you each night,
Then say a prayer
You will be all right.


Linda Ann Henry 2005
Do you remember me
The people's poet

Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land.
She prepares a world she will not see.
Pope Paul VI
