When you are sad, I will swim with you in an ocean of tears and become your life jacket when you are ready to let go of the feeling.
I will listen with an open heart..an open mind and hold your hand through every storm.
When you are cold, I will become the fire that heats you…embers gifting you with a warmth to remind you that you are never alone.
I will cast away all shivers of doubt and worry with a blaze of assurance at a moments notice.
When you are sick, I will make you the foods that fulfill your soul, play melodies that will morph into blankets of healing, and sing sunshine back into your frail little body.
When you are lonely, I will appear in the twinkle of the stars, the sway of the leaves and the blossoming of every flower. Every raindrop will be a kiss from me to you and every tick of a clock will be my I love you.
When you are afraid, I will slay every monster and capture every dragon. You will live atop a mountain of safety as I shatter the glass of darkness, turmoil and pain of this world. Glass you will never have to touch.
When you are tired, I will lay down a thousand and one bedtime stories of your happiness, your love, your growth and triumphs. You will lay upon the stories of joy and wonder and fall into dreams of hope.
When you are grumpy, I will do all the silly little things that make you giggle and tickle you until you hit the highest pitch of laughter known to man.
I will shower you in jelly belly droplets and strawberry shortcake swirls, in fruit punches and sun kisses.
When you are lost, I will shine upon you the radiant beam of the moon, to find you in the darkest hour. Whether a lifetime away or simply two feet…whether you are unfound or just feeling unseen…I will hold you in my heart and cast love and light upon your name.
I will dim the light when you do not want to be found, though I will never turn my back, I will give you the space and time you need.
When you are happy…oh when you are happy. I will bask in the glow of your joy and relish in the wonder of your smile. I will count my lucky stars for having the opportunity to be your mother and thank my lucky stars that you chose me. Saved me. Taught me what love means.
When you are happy.
