My Mother's Prayer

A dedication to my rock,  my anchor.

My mother’s prayers

Palms clasped with many hopes
Eyes sealed with visions
Bended knees carrying my weight
Praising lips singing hymns
My mother’s prayers
Open as a soaring field
Faith dashing across hills
Wherever I am
Wherever she goes
Wrapped in her petition
To the God
To the Goddess
To the Cosmos
To the Universe
That I stand straight
That I carry lightness
That I give gifts
To receive blessings
That I inhale health
And exhale joy
My mother’s prayers
Constant and committed
Guidance when I steer astray
Cushioning when I land heavy
Healing where I ache
Sewing where I tear
Watery eyes it wipes away
My mother’s prayers
Words of faith
Embraced in her lyrical protection
Embalmed in her divine connection
Cocooned in the nook of her devotion
Shielded behind her believing armor
Always coated in her loving potion
My mother’s prayer
