Mother's Inspiration

I wonder if you realize your accomplishments,
as life greets you with torment
each moment his mind drifts away.

Your calm nature
provides him a way to exist
when he doesn't recognize you
or know he's at home.

When your child's heart
is breaking,
you reach out
as only a mom can do,
when your plate
is already full.

Showing so much compassion
in the face of tragic diversity,
dealing with the agony of pain,
understanding things can look brighter
in the wake of a new day.
