A Mother’s Blessing, From To Bless The Space Between Us

For A Mother
Mother,
Your voice learning to soothe
Your new child
Was the first home-sound…
We heard before we could see.
Your young eyes
Gazing on us
Was the first mirror
Where we glimpsed
What could be seen
Could mean.
-John O’ Donohue, To Bless The Space Between Us
