Secret For My Children


We want them to know we love them.

But mommies have secrets

That get in the way – may

Get in the way of their knowing

Our loving.

My secrets:

I don’t like to chat on the phone,

Need to visit.  I can’t give advice

(I’m just harmlessly nice)

Knowing that I don’t know.


I love them to pieces,

Admire their choices

And destinies.

Private by nature

(not seeking out groups)

My secret is this:

Not visits, advising, discussing or asking;

Not peering and listening, buying and basking

In sunrays of family,

Skyping or phoning –

But loving, just loving

While being alone.


I know that you know.

I just want you to know.
