Mothers

provide a nest of love
for the part of them
who became a boy or girl.

First, cries of joy
life --
a new world in which
to grow

to be nurtured,
to live a memoir of love
watched by mama
absorbing the growth
of babe to teen then adult.

Years later, this same
mother lays in bed
reflecting upon
those years,
with a love that never ends,

(c) 2016 Richard L. Provencher
