Mother's Love is like Christmas Lights
For decades from afar
I have looked on
through the house window
of loving families.
Their Christmas lights
adorned their cheerful souls.
I wander for years in the winter storm
asking myself, how does it feel
to have Christmas lights in my heart?
28 years later I am no longer in the dark,
asking that question anymore.
You may not be my Mother
when I entered this world,
but you are Mother's Love to me
that lights my way back home.
