Sleeping in with snuggles
Is summer vacation.
Sweet cuddles close and comfortable
Speak to the priceless fruit of my vocation.
Motherhood can be challenging,
Yet the bonds are immensely rewarding
Reaching into the depths of my being.
Precious tender moments together
Savored in uncomplicated ways
Natural for child and mother
More powerful when another stays.
Closeness in the quiet
Of an unopened day
Feels safe and protected
Pure and true as it may.
Giving into needed sleep and rest
Has allowed space
To enjoy what is very best.
Loving without wanting or race.
“To be or not to be.
That is the question.”
The answer is most clear to me,
For it is in the being that we receive.
