they carry us inside their bodies
nourishing us with the very substance
of their souls
sacrificing their own life force
to bring us into the world

they supply us with the fruits of their labor
swaddling us in warm embraces
while they mold our spirits
and provide us the instruments
to assemble our dreams

a mother is a soft touch
carried on a warm wind
a gentle caress
from the fingertips of
the universe

provided to each child of the cosmos
so that all that is,has ever been,
or ever will be
stands in support of the
wonder that is creation

thank you to all the mothers
you alone are the force that brings
everything there is
into existence
