Infinite Love... A poem to my mum...

  •  Infinite Love
    I REMEMBER feeling you for the first time, so soft and cuddly
    and feeling a sense of belonging…
    I REMEMBER blowing out my first birthday candle, making a mess
    and bouncing in an indoor chair…
    I REMEMBER playing with my sister outdoors and in our conservatory
    watching the caterpillars, chrysalis and butterflies transform in jam-jars…
    I REMEMBER taking care of our pet guinea-pig, rabbit and cat
    and the pony who still remains in my imagination…
    I REMEMBER hearing the piano played, the fingers so fluent on the keys
    and my music lessons on the guitar…
    I REMEMBER playing with my friends in the park and digging
    our garden with my dad and sister…
    I REMEMBER trips to my grandparents in the country and in the town
    celebrating family birthdays, weddings and christmas..
    I REMEMBER the inner joy I always felt at christmas time, santa’s sherry
    and mince pie, made possible by you and dad’s love and excitement…
    I REMEMBER us going away on holidays, riding donkeys,
    making sandcastles and running on the beach and into the sea…
    I REMEMBER watching you wash the clothes and dishes, cleaning
    the house and you teaching me to iron…
    I REMEMBER loving to watch films with my dad and sister
    and crackerjack at 5 to 5…
    I REMEMBER your love for flowers, the smell of your roses
    and admiring your green fingers…
    I REMEMBER feeling rebellious, a sense of conflict between me and
    the outside world and being called mary-mary-quite-contrary…
    I REMEMBER finding it hard to breathe for a while and feeling
    an inner urge to explore, find freedom and who I truly was…
    I REMEMBER you letting me go… to begin my adventure alone,
    my wings expanded in confidence, I took off to discover beyond…
    The sprinkle of your love and joy has grown so big within me, flowing over
    and becoming one with my own love of self…
    Your nurturing is my nurturing, your love is my love, your joy is my joy,
    you are and IAM one…
    Each morning I awake in a bundle of love, have a sense of joy and
    excitement and arise to create another best moment exploring all that is…
    I turn my head around and feel your embrace, I gently kiss you
    on the cheek and silently thank you for being you…
    LOVE IS INFINITE… YOU AND ME… I LOVE YOU 
    Your loving daughter Barbara xxx 
    Not only for Mothers Day 2013 but for every day…
