A Mother's Collection: Tissues, Bones, And Blood (Fourth)

Poem By Almedia Knight Oliver

Fourth Born


While they were carefully restoring
The damaged done to my sacred house,
I heard a whisper in my ear,
"Mother you have a baby girl."
I had thought I would have another boy and
would name him "Lanzy- granddaddy's name"

Like my first born, I asked myself, what to do with
This little pink bundle of joy
Oh my, a girl! Your dad jumped for joy for his
little girl born of my tears, tears, and pains.

Now a quarter century later- right before my eyes-
You've become a beautiful daughter, wife, mother, and sister.
Your passion to be and to do your best is evident in all of these.

As her mother, I learned from my daughter:
To be a good listener,
An astute debater who, some times, gets in the last word.
To be caring and compassionate.
Be her mother and another girl friend.
Our reign as the only females are evident in all of these.

Now allow me to present my gift to you…
Oh, how I wish to give you diamonds and sapphires;
Rubies and emeralds!
Sorry darling, those things I have not.
But have whole lot:
"my eternal unconditional love"

Eternal unconditional love. Wow! What a beautiful mother you are, and blessed! Proverbs 31 second half is just for you!
A queen raising a queen. The reign of females is needed to provide a softening rain for the dry sands of arid men.
REAL LOVE between mother and her child is the most precious thing in this life... the collection is so worthy, sooo lovely! Mother is the first teacher of her Children, is the well of love, compassion and wisedom... GOD bless you! ! ! PeaCe&LoVe Enigma/
An other touching piece, children are the best gift one can get in this world! You are blessed to have 4 children! They must fill your life with joy and satisfaction and your love for them is “ eternal, unconditional ” as you said...

A Rush Of Wild Wind

Love is like a wild wind
Am I just a howling wildness?
or maybe a howling triumph!

Evening's Solitude

In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land

The Power Of Love

Early on: the radiance morning sun
infusing space and exposing me unbound
I lay beside him, marveling aura waltzing
behind my eyelids

A Loving Partner

We found each other under the evening sky
the moon sat directly over our heads and sent
tidal waves that made our hearts bulge with love.

Her First born that seems so long ago:

Peering into my mind
Look at what I see!

A Special Friend

Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world

Your friendship likens a fruit-
