You were my alpha _ source of life
My nourishment and comfort _
Your gentle touch and soothing voice
Assured me of a presence.
You fed and nurtured _ reassured
Compelled my very senses _
The stimulus that made me grow
Was You above all others.
You made my being come alive
Like water on a flower _
I drank your love and baby bloomed
In gardens that you watered.
You were the tender loving cup
That made my own runneth over
You were and are my fountainhead
Forever _ dearest Mother!
(my mother died in 1998 ...
she is always in my heart and on my mind
and a source of daily inspiration!)
