A Mothers Strength
There she sat in a lonely and dark room.
Tears falling from the news she just heard.
The pain and anger she felt freezing her to the chair.
The not knowing of what was to come was hard to bear.
Seeing her son, explosions of all feeling hard to control.
The look in his eyes when he looked at her, was the question why.
Her heart ached, an answer she could not give to him.
Standing up, she took him in her arms and they cried together.
When the crying was over, the words they spoke were soft and unsure.
The decisions were made with caution and careful planning.
The unknown and fear chilling both of them to the very core.
The steps taken from that day forward, they walked them together.
Each step they took together, they took them with love and hope.
The mother with her love, courage, understanding and patience was always there.
The son with all his anger, confusion, doubt, fear , and love held to her tightly.
The mother holding him in her arms, took all of his feelings into her heart.
Now they walk the road ahead of them knowing that they share this together.
The son looks to his mother, seeing her eyes, he draws the strength he sees .
The son goes to his mother and hugs her, from her arms he feels her strength.
The son from his mothers words of love, hears the words of faith and hope.
Now they walk this road together, the son and mother know they have each other.
The mother sometimes feel that she is alone no one to understand.
This she keeps away from her son, afraid that if he sees, he will try to walk it alone.
So with her strength, she puts on a smiling face, walks the steps with determination.
The mother who remains silent and strong will walk though the fires of hell for him.
The mother who is always there no matter what they face will hold him in her heart.
The mother who cries in the night will cling to the love that she and her son has.
The mother who gives her love, courage, faith, and strength to her son, seeing his face and love gains strength to walk the rest of the way with him.
