I sat down, words in my head
prepared to write for you, and women too
but found I was at a loss instead
Where to start? What to write?
How can I describe my endless delight
for the mother I hold so dearly?
Working hands, long hours unseen
or artistic moments snatched on the inbetween
No, my words can't describe you nearly
with the justice you deserve, oh precious mother
You're worth more than just a merely
What an unfathomable thing you've done
Carried bubbling life at your abdomen
Gave children to my father- and more!
Gave me little playmates I so adore
My lovely sisters, what great women you'll be!
"I cant express the pride I felt, love, when you came out to me!"
"You, we're so proud, you're almost at the eighteen mark!
I beg you, tell me what it's like to feel that adult spark"
"Oh, sweetie, I would not forget my dear littlest-
though you have a teeny body, you're the most vivacious!"
Thank you, mama, for all the wonderful women I know
and thank you for the life you gave, so I might grow and grow
I, too, am a girl, though a women I'm not quite
But under your watchful care, a great women I could be...
Yes, I think that I just might
Wish I could let you read this, mom. <3
