Just Be

May 30, 2010

It’s Sunday, it’s raining and I am sitting here cozy in my un-matched socks and tracksuits gazing at the left-over dinner on the table and thinking “man, I wish I had a cleaner”.  Being a mother while trying to do other stuff can be as challenging as it is awe inspiring.  While dealing with a rather tense daughter this afternoon I was inspired to write this.  Do you think it is good enough to go into THE BOOK?   Anyway, enjoy and please feel free to post your poems below. Sharing is good (unless it involves chocolate in which case you can shove off and get your own)

Just Be.

I am an endless cup of cocoa

I’m the cuddle that cures all ills.

I am a love that knows no boundaries

I am the flame that warms the chills.

I have a heart that’s made for sharing

I pick you up each time you fall.

I have a strength that’s brave and daring

I always listen to your call.


I am your mother plain and simple

I’m a wife and lover too.

I am a daughter and a sister

I am a friend and a ‘can-do’ .

I am a student and a teacher

I’m an employee and a boss.

I am a mind that’s always open

I am a stone without the moss.


I am everything and nothing

I am endless yet finite.

I’m a truth that’s universal

I am love and passions light.

I’m as constant as I’m changing

I’m as chained as I am free.

I am beauty and perfection

I’m amazing.

I am me.


Just be.

    I rather like this poem…but alas I’m not an expert at such things so can only state my opinion…know nothing about worthiness for book.

    You are obviously the mom your daughter needs right now, and I’m sure she knows all these things deep in her heart. She’s lucky (and I suspect you are too). My daughter conveyed a similar sentiment about me 2 weeks ago while she was stressed out and away from home. Without a poem, she said I just want you in my pocket. These are good, though sometimes tough moments. Enjoy and thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comments. Parents (me included) often feel anything but perfect as we rush around trying to juggle without dropping anything. However, it does pay to stop every so often and see the beauty and perfection that is in each and every one of us.
