Sacred Kisses


Image Sacred Kisses

Ten little  toes brushed my mother’s lips

as she blessed them with her kiss.

She could not foretell where they would take me

but her love was the shield I would carry.

When I wandered too far from home

all alone

Scared and lost my little girl self frightened

I had only to turn and find my mother’s outstretched arms.

It was to her I ran when my young  adult life as I knew it

crumbled and fell into splintered shards.

She could not fix  my broken pieces

but her strength helped me to learn to heal.

Life cruelly stole her from my earthly orbit

in the blink of an eye she had vanished.

Her love is still the shield I carry

as I walk my path on blessed kisses.
