like God loves you

when a mother loves you
–even if she is not your mother–
it means something
she won’t say it
as sentimental nonsense
or mere emotional transience
it means if you bring her a gift
she will treasure it
just because it came from your hands
if you give her a kiss
she will return it
twice
she won’t cage you chain you
she will want you free to grow
to be even more you
whoever you are
when a mother loves you
you are loved
a little bit
like God loves you

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
