For My Mother’s Eyes


Release me, Dear Mom
Your gentle touch thrills me still
My heart satisfied
My stomach full

Release me, Dear Love
Let your motherhood sail
My feet hold me now
My thoughts enabled

Release me, Dear One,
Your lessons firmly within me
As you made sure
Paths now before me

Release me, Dear Mother,
Nurture-hood is motherhood
Spotless you were
Dress myself well now

Release me, Dear Angel,
Pointing me to the stars
Set the sails for high
Clearly see the wind

Release me, Oh Great One,
Your eyes forever upon me
Beyond the stars
Echoes your cosmic breath
And finds me well
