Unknown Love

I read about the death of a stranger’s loved one recently
I was rapidly moved by the picture of him and his lost loved one
It was as if I had seen them before
Perhaps somewhere in time we had a conversation
exchanged a few hellos

I really don’t know why I was internally moved to tears

Maybe because it was about his mother

I am a mother

and I Love my Sons with a Love no one truly knows or cares to know unless they too, are mothers

A mother’s Love runs deep
My heart cascades with a well known story — for them
My heart
My everything
I wish you could see and feel my heart now
A relish of specks which glow their names
The very presence of their being ignites
