Be beautiful, baby…



Be beautiful, baby…


the weekend,

the sun,

the heat

is upon us

with lists of things to do

separating me from you

in distance

in words you threw

with your inside pain

turned out

sometimes silence



so startling


to sink in

to feel


sweet you were

all the days of your

young life

and now adulthood

has conferred its


I wish you peace,

I wish you

could feel

the love

I have for you

if only

the words of a mother

would do.

    We want so much to shield them. But we can’t. But the next best thing is to love them unconditionally. To always remember who is the adult here. And who is the child. What lucky children to have you as a mother Lily. Jx

      Thank you, Janine. I so love my children; they know they have that, and in this world that is something. I know that you know how that is. Hugs, for you and yours,
      ~ Lily

  6. This one will have meaning to mothers everywhere. It was lovely Lily 🙂

  7. Lovingly written, Lily…so full of peace. BTW, I’ve been doing ‘catch-up’, so I finally understand your comment re: ‘Bee with White Flower’! Yours is a beauty!
