Dear Mother From Your Child

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

You nurtured me inside your womb
You said prayers that I might be born
clothed with beauty, health and sanity.
You followed my growth and giggled
at the way I kicked your soft belly.

You woke up each night as I cried
Picked me up, danced and sang me lullabies
At late night, dawn, and early morn,
you cuddled me by your hands so divine.
and wrapped me by your dreams of might.

I heard your voice and breathed your presence
Of pure sweetness and fragrant elegance
You were no longer alone or a wife to man
Your world became intertwined to mine.
I was destined to be with you as one.
