3 Word Wednesday, a poetic dialogue

The Mother speaks:

Sometimes unnoticed,

Cleaning, cooking and caring,

Done time and again

Million acts of selfless love;

The way to show I love you.

The Child speaks:

Do you love me, Mom?

I ask a million questions;

Though you’re so busy

I want to spend time with you,

Not unnoticed day by day.

The Mother replies:

Childhood time passes,

A million precious details

Hidden in my heart,

Not unnoticed, but treasured;

I love you now, and always.
