When I awaken to the crooning of The Mother

I know that I am loved

When I am alone but not lonely

I know that I am loved

When a four legged friend sleeps in the hollow of my belly

I know that I am loved

When his tired eyes light up after my kisses

I know that I am loved

When I hear “I love you Granny”

I know that I am loved

When I pull the warm laundry from the dryer

I know that I am loved

When I stir the kettle and the house smells like dinner

I know that I am loved

When I trace the silver stretch marks across my abdomen

I know that I am loved

When I look at the wrinkles around my eyes and smile

I know that I am loved

When my silver hair shines like sparkling stars

I know that I am loved

When I remember the embrace of my father

I know that I am loved

Every time I hear the word “Mom”

I know that I am loved

In my life, there is no time for hate

For I know that I am loved
