Madrecita

Beautiful
Beautiful as you
Walking and never running
Turning but never regretting
Thoughtful
Kind
Sacrificing all you know
Because
All you know is all you have
I never knew what you gave up
Just for me
And I was only three
I’m sorry that I couldn’t see
What you wanted was for me to be
Happy
Safe
Smart
Secure
Never wanting
Only giving
I learned it all from you
From the kitchen
To having a broken heart
But never
Ever
Falling apart
You are the strongest woman I know
Broken skin
You’ll never find it
Nope
Not on you
Your coco-buttered skin
A blessing for me
I lavish myself times three
You are all I ever want to be
A heart sliced open
Just for me
