O Mother of a Son

do I see you celebrating there?

The birth of your pride, your prize, your heir

 

O Mother of a Son

is that derision I see?

Each time you look at a woman who has birthed a She

 

O Mother of a Son

do you wonder if you love him enough?

Even though at the sight of him you choke up with pride and emotions run amok

 

O Mother of a Son

are you teaching him all that he needs to know?

Honour, respect, loyalty and things that will make him into a fine man grow

 

O Mother of a Son

are you loosening your apron strings?

As his heart gets attached to another’s, and you feel the sting

 

O Mother of a Son

have you taught him to belong?

To a She who must become part of a We, forgetting herself along

 

O Mother of a Son

do you still love him the same?

Even though he now responds to another one’s name

 

O Mother of a Son

do you use your wiles?

To pull him back and shatter his world with your skilled guile

 

O Mother of a Son

when will you see

He is your happiness, just as his happiness is she

 

O Mother of a Son

Just let him go

He will always be yours, and you the only Mother he knows.

  1. A mother has to learn to let go, whether she has a son or a daughter. She needn’t feel threatened with someone else’s inclusion is her son’s life.
    Loved this poem, M.

  2. Simply too good ! Loved it. So beautiful use of words:
    O Mother of a Son
    are you loosening your apron strings?
    As his heart gets attached to another’s, and you feel the sting.

    Stay blessed.
