I am on your side

I am on your side

A Poem by Selena D. Harper

Caressing love in your heart
Kissing your forehead with assurance
Telling you nothings gonna separate us
Not even the almighty sitting in heaven
As your mother, who birthed you
Who cared for you along with God,
I know your heartache and your pain
For you my heart cries in misery
I know this heartbreak will burn you inside
But on this journey you have me on your side

I do feel you- the mother reaching out with her love to assure her son he is not alone on this difficult journey. A beautiful reminder of how deep love can bind one to another, and act as a lifeline in troubled times. Beautiful sentiments expressed with gentleness and compassion.

This is a very good write expressing your emotions and love for your son, there is nothing more painful than to see our loved ones going through pain and we are unable to anything but your last line of the poem can lift your your son's heart, there is nothing more powerful than to have our mothers in our side... I hope and pray that your son goes through this hard time soon... You can check out my poem "they are stronger than the storm" which has a similar kind of meaning but not much...

This is all we do sometimes.
"I know this heartbreak will burn you inside
But on this journey you have me on your side"
Sometime words have no value but a kind face and friend near. Can save us. Thank you Selena for sharing the excellent poetry.

A beautiful, heartfelt write on what Mothers do, no matter how near or far, young or old their child is, worry for the world your child is in and feel their pain. Lovely write.
