Love Stitches

There are mothers

who make me miss 

motherhood

in the most wonderful 

way, who spark my own

mothering-soul, those 

mama bears who shine 

brightest when rendering 

tender care, keeping 

the night-watch, nurturing 

with the fullest kind 

of sacrificial love, 

those whose hearts knit

love stitches, weaving

comfort and calm

for the little souls

they are blessed to cherish

from conception

to forevermore. 

—C.L. Fisher, May 2021
