A Sonnet for My Incomparable Mother
by Joanna Fuchs
|A Mother-Daughter Moment|
|A Grandmother-Granddaughter Moment|
I often contemplate my childhood, Mom.
I am a mother now, and so I know
Hard work is mixed together with the fun;
You learned that when you raised me long ago.
|Three Generations of Love, Spring 2011|
I think of all the things you gave to me:
Sacrifice, devotion, love, and tears,
Your heart, your mind, your energy and soul--
All these you spent on me throughout the years.
|Three Generations of Spunk, last year 2010|
How is it my mother looks the same and I keep looking older and older (and not wiser, might I add)?
You loved me with never-failing love
You gave me strength and sweet security,
And then you did the hardest things of all:
You let me separate and set me free.
|Baby Bear on Mother's Day 2010|
Everyday, I try my best to be
A mother like the mom you were [are] to me.
For my Awa. I love you so very much. Happy Mother's Day!
