If I die today, I ask myself
Have I given my children enough love ?
Have I laughed with them and cuddled them?
Have I shared some of my life’s lessons?
Have I given them strength
To face the world with courage?
Have I shared my values
so that they know what is important to me?
Have I taught them to question
and make sense of the world in their own way?
Have I introduced them
to the wonders of nature
that so inspire me
and bring joy to my heart
and to all the other things that make my spirit soar?
Have I encouraged them to be true to themselves
and follow their own path in life?
Have I allowed them the freedom
to explore and have adventures
to taste the juice and passion of life?
Have I given them the space to fall
and pick themselves up?
Have I been there
to nurture them, comfort them,
sing with them, dance with them?
Have I been true to myself
So that they learn not from what I say, but what I do?
Have I been a good mother
on my own terms?
