What Mom Took

Most often when we think of Mom,

we think of what she’s given

The softness of a loving touch, a gentle

guide for living,

A nightly tip-toe in a room, an

understanding look.

But sometimes when I think of Mom, I think of what she took.

She took a child and taught it how to live this

life with pride.

She took those kindergarten tears and kept them all inside.

She took the hands that longed to hold her child

and not let go,

Used them to push her child along the way,

to thrive and grow.

She took time to do some other things,

like sew and clean and cook,

And never thought to ask for thanks.

For all the things she took.

Thanks Mom
