Mom Days

Scrubbing dishes
Folding clothes
"Mommy, will you blow my nose?"

          Hours spent
          In the kitchen
          Rarely gaining recognition.

Tears of joy
Tears of rage
"Mommy, can I turn the page?"

          Make a mess
          Pick up after
          Feel my heart soar with their laughter.

Tucking in
Time to rest
"Mommy, you are just the best!"

          Hold them close
          Don't let go
          It's a wonder how they grow.
