Mother Me

Mother me

said she

eyes burning

hands shivering

feet tottering

mother me

said she

aching from being strong

tired of standing tall

mother me

said she

take me to the party

tell me a story

sing me a song

mother me

said she

hug me tight

hold me fast

sit me down

mother me

said she

listen

stop

watch

mother me

said she

still be the night

slow be the sun

shine upon your own.

mother me

she whispered

the spirit cried

the hands worked.
