To Those Who Made Me a Mother...

photo by Laurel (she did a good job!)

You are the trip I did not take
You are the pearls I could not buy,
You are my blue Italian lake,
You are my piece of foreign sky.

You are my Honolulu moon, 
You are the book I did not write,
You are my heart's unuttered tune, 
You are my candle in the night.

You are the flower beneath the snow,
in my dark sky a bit of blue,
Answering disappointment's blow with..
"I'm happy! I have you!"
- Anne Campbell


  1. Way to make your mother cry! I'm so grateful that you have put your whole effort, amazing talent, and abounding love into your children and husband. That has made me fulfilled.
    I love you, Mom

  2. That was beautiful and so are you! Happy Mothers Day!
