A Spoken Letter For Ma’

in #hive3 years ago (edited)


Hi mama!

You look so much like me,
I know.
Because everyone can tell.
The way you smile,
the way your nose wrinkles in annoyance and
the fear and sacrifices in your eyes.
Me, you and my brothers are the same—
We are all the same

But of all those
I want to have the same strength,
Compassion, and
Love that you posses.

You are our Home.
And we all wanted to be home.

Te amo.


But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin.
—Mitch Albom

What a beautiful story. I feel this about my own mother who now awaits in Heaven. Blessings.

Awww. Hug. Appreciate it.
Iknow your mom would really be proud.

The Mitch Albom quote was a fitting commentary on your poem which is a paean of praise to your mother and very touching, Michell. It's too bad the Youtube link didn't work - they're tricky at times - I used one tonight on a Twitter post and fiddling with it made me very cross, lol
