Stepmom Poetry ~ My Stepmother’s Song

My Stepmother’s Song


My beloved stepmom, I’ll remember you everyday

And on this Mother’s Day

I honor your memory

From struggling beginnings to a deep bond

I treasure the time

As I grieve your loss

Your ability to strive hard and reach far

Met and embraced my locked-down-deep heart

Opened my squeezed-tight eyes

To a life of family, faith, hope, and compromise

You came into my life so late

You left it so very early

The days between but a wisp of wind

Caressing, blessing, gone.

Yet, the wind whispered a song I’ll always sing

It’s never gone.

You sang into my life the very love of a mother

As though I’d been no other

Child but yours.
