by Judy Davis
I held you the moment you entered this world,
I held you as you took your first steps.
I held you as you struggled to ride a bike,
And I held my tears as you walked into school that very first time.
I held my hands in prayer as you held the keys to my car,
I held your heart when it was breaking.
I held my breath as you opened that letter,
I held my head high when your dream became a reality.
I held back my sadness as you began your new life,
I held my tongue when you knew more than I.
I hold my breath as you find your way,
I will hold your child the day you understand why
I hold you forever in my heart.
I will Hold You Always,
I am your mother.
