A Mother’s Love

A mother’s love
Joined by cord
Made of flesh
Cut at birth
Never separated
Unbroken connection
Woven in nucleus
Wrapped by DNA
Center of my heart
Anchor to my soul.

A mother’s love
Vast as the stars
That light up night
Bright as daybreak
That pierces dark
In winds, and rain
Unfettered by storms
Even in death
Anchors my soul.

A mother’s love
Bigger than the universe
Deeper than the seas
Wider than space
More magical than time
Quantum physics, can’t touch
Speed of sound, no match
Fierce beyond measure
Inexplicable joy
My soul forever anchored.

By my mother’s love.
