The idea is to write it so that people read it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.

To My Mother


Because I feel that, in the Heavens above, The angels, whispering to one another, Can find, among their burning terms of love, None so devotional as that of “Mother,”

Therefore by that dear name I long have called you—

You who are more than mother unto me,

And fill my heart of hearts, where hurtful life installed with you,

In setting my fragile spirit free.

My mother—my own mother, who faced thousands obstacles in life,

Is but the mother of myself; but you

Are mother to the one I loved so dearly,

And thus are dearer than the life I see now

by that infinity love you have given me

Is so dear that it captures my heart until the very end of time

My everything
