The sparkle in her eyes

as she sees him

the peaceful glean in her eyes

as he steps back in the household

It brings happiness

etched in her wrinkles

happiness radiating 

from her crow's-feet

A new wave of life and energy

flows through her old veins

the flash of happiness

through her cracked lips

the glow on her face

can put the sun to shame

The eternal wait and 

constant worrying has

finally, come to an end

the moment he walks in

Her whole world is there

right at the moment 

He is her epicenter again.

Her old bones have been 

re-energized with the flow of 

her love and passion

her instincts have been resurrected

from the deep slumber, they were in.

she again becomes

the epitome of care 

making her mission 

to shower her love

and gently wash away all his pain

Well,nothing can compare 

the ecstasy of a mother

when she sees her child again.

  1. Beautiful! It really sums up what my mom in law feels when we visit her and sees my husband. By the way, thank you for always dropping by my blog 😊. It means a lot to me 😉❤️.

  2. This brought tears to my eyes. When I was expecting my first child, I was told that I had eighteen years of child-rearing ahead of me – as if it would end when they grew up. It never ends – not the heartbreaks, nor the joy, or the unimaginable love.
    Beautifully done.
