Mothers Remembered  

As you recall,
Your womb cradled your baby gently,
Your arms embraced your baby lovingly,
And your own mom carried you excitedly.
Remember the beauty of this unending circle of love.
You are always a mom, loved by a mom.
Separation and death can’t break it.
This bond and love endures,
Forever and always.
Moms remember. 
Moms are to be remembered.
It is the only way. 
The right way. 
God’s way.  

Remember, mom, remember.  

-- S. Ilse 2009

Father’s Day  

Dad, you support mom along the way
Waiting for the time and day
When you can hold your daughter or son
And you can finally be the one
To toss your babe above your head
And tuck him in his waiting bed
Make a toy or buy a drum
Your time was near, but did not come.  

Who knew you would be standing nigh
And have to prematurely say goodbye?  

This day is yours and yet it’s not
Others don’t see the many tears you fought
To hold within and look so strong
As you tried to say nothing wrong.  

On this your special Father’s Day
Remember your baby who would want to say,
“I love you Dad.  You are the one.
I’ll always be your daughter (or son.)
Feel my kiss upon your cheek
And know that someday I believe we’ll meet.
Until then, let your tears come, (or not)
And love my mommy lots and lots.”
