mum loves

(For mum on the eve of Mother’s Day and every other lovin’ mother out there…)

mum loves
that’s all mum can do
to save her world,
to save her own

mum loves
to keep the hate away,
to keep the dark at bay –
mum loves to breathe,
and mum loves to live
and not to drown in it all

mum loves
when love is all
that keeps death down;
mum loves in fierce
and cutting ways;
she loves
to keep the light around

mum loves
