My son


My son is sleeping
and God is with him
Long legs all over the bed
Big hands on the blanket
sixteen
not a boy
not a man

How can this happen?
motherhood is a mystery
and a miracle

God is painting a masterpiece
as I am watching

    Pia - Motherhood is indeed a mystery and a miracle and you are watching while God is painting His master piece. Profound feelings of a mother with all the questions and anxieties sublimely expressed.

    Every mother knows these feelings, and I suspect, every father does, too. (Report) Reply

    It is such a wonderful piece of literature. I want to go on reading it again and again.
    May be, when I will have kids of my own, I wil be able to understand the depth of your poem. I asked my mummy to read it and she loved it.
    Love,

    reading and re-reading your this gem of a poem leads one to believe that, except mother's love for the child, all other kinds of so called love are just wastes...undeserving of the tag of love.....such poems bear the hallmark of the purity of maternal love...thanks...Pia for the wonderful poem...regards...
