A MOTHER'S SECRET

When she was a young girl she climbed into her mother’s lap

and asked this question, so innocently…

“Momma,” she said, “I was wondering

will you ever stop loving me?”

 

Her mom gave her a hug, an extra long hug

then resting her chin on her daughter’s head

“Let me tell you a little secret…about being a mother”..she said.

 

“I’ve loved you from the moment inside me…I felt your life begin…

I love you every time I breathe out…

and every time I breathe in…

 

I will never stop loving you…never…

I will never discredit our doubt you

I will never stop thinking or worrying…

or wishing or dreaming about you.

 

I love you just as much when you’re here in my lap

as I’ll love you when you’re fully grown…

I’ll love you the same when you’re no longer living with me…

when you’re married with kids of your own…

 

It’s something all mother’s feel

in our hearts in our souls in our brains…

a love that is with us… that will never end… 

a wonderful secret we cannot explain.”

 

And the young girl felt that love all of her life

and was ready when her daughter climbed on her knee…

and asked with the innocence of a child…

 

“Momma…will you ever stop loving me?”

A MOTHER'S SECRET

On the day she was born her mother held her in her arms

her happiness cascading down in tears.

She kissed her forehead, held her tiny hand in hers

then whispered in her ear…

 

Do you want to know a secret?

It’s crazy but it’s true.

For as long as I can remember

I’ve been waiting here for you.

 

You were a thought I had when I was young…

A wish that persevered…

A dream that reached perfection

the day when you appeared…

 

There may come a time..a moment in your life

before your childhood is through

When you might stop and wonder

when I first fell in love with you.

 

I’m not sure how it happened

I’m not sure how I knew

But there has always been a place in my heart

I had reserved for you.

 

A place both warm and comforting

where my love for you survived…

And there it waited patiently

for the day you would arrive…

 

I’ve had years of love stored up for you…

waiting for the day our lives would intertwine…

and the truth is…

I did not fall in into your love…

 

you fell into mine.
