To all mothers in Vietnam
and to those who lost their mother
like me...

A Mother Smiles



A mother smiles, through her cheers,
her child is thriving, safe and happy,
views Life through freedom痴 eyes,
sees opportunity and adventure
she continues, striving,
to give her light to her child.

A mother smiles, through her tears,
her child is starving, cold and dying,
watches her with beggared eyes,
sees veils of darkness lowering
she continues, lip carving,
to send her love to her child.

A mother smiles, through her fears,
her child surviving, burnt and armless,
blasted memories shine in his eyes,
sees bombs dropping from darkened skies
she continues, contriving,
to give some hope to her child.

A mother smiles, through the years,
her children arriving, grown and lessoned,
maternal melodies glow from their eyes,
they see hope and embrace the circle
she continues, thriving,
weaving Time痴 children痴 Lives.
