Forgiveness of a Mother’s Love
A Mother’s Love reaches across hills, valleys, rivers and streams.
Across the eons of time and universe to hear her child’s cry for help.
I knelt at her feet, my head in her lap. The lap containing the womb of the Goddess who gave me life.
Her arms bridge the gap between this life and the next. My face cupped in her hands of redemption seeking salvation.
An outpouring of forgiveness sweeps over me like standing under a waterfall with waves of compassion and love overflowing the empty spaces in my life.
A Mother’s Love is all encompassing, all faithful, all trusting. Hope against hope. Faith against faith. Reaching across the void separating us, pulling me close to her breasts, within her very being, enveloping me in undying love.
Dedicated to the memory of my Mom,
Mable Elizabeth Palmer, May 2, 1930 – August 2, 1998
