to be a mother

Standard

to be soft, but steady
to be firm, but flexible
to love wholeheartedly, yet live with detachment
to be always ready at arm’s length –
so you are close enough to be pulled into a hug
and to be pushed for him to breathe and be

to always teeter on the middle thread
to always seek the elusive equilibrium

I wrote this a few months ago and totally forgot to post! That’s mother’s brain for you 😛
