Love…Wonder…Amazement

motherandchild

For most of my life,
I watched you in wonder.
Wondering whether I could ever measure up;
if I could fulfill your hopes and dreams for me.
I question whether I was worth all the dreams deferred
But
Most times I remember the pride that filled your voice when you bragged,
Recall the touch of your fingers on the tattoo, and see you reading my thesis
I know in those moments
that I was truly loved.
