13 Different Ways of Looking at Your Mom

1.


Waiting for you in the doorway
The first to ask about your day
And want to know the answer


2.
Establishing order
Strong, fearless
Stable
The rock in your life


3.
In the kitchen yelling,
The harsh exchange of words between parents


4.
Standing in a busy crowd
Holding your hand
As you cross the street


5.
The only one awake at night
Worrying


6.
Hands that cover your eyes
When the movie
Gets too violent


7.
I hate yous
And slamming doors
You don’t see her face
Behind the wood


8.
Seated on the side of the bed
Tucking you in


9.
Crying softly into her pillow
Muffling the sound
When she thinks
All are sleeping


10.
Going to a job
Where she is on call 27/7
But called a freeloader


11.
Unafraid of sickness
When she holds you
As you cough


12.
Walking on the side
Of the sidewalk
Closest the the road


13.
Holding you close
When you’re:
Afraid
Upset
Stressed
Frustrated
Betrayed
Lonely
Lost
