To My Beautiful Mother - A Villanelle

Your presence is like medicine to my overwhelmed mind

The unconditional love and faith you have in me

I admire your ability to be so kind

 

A mother like you would never leave me behind 

Always plastering on my face, a smile of glee 

Your presence is like medicine to my overwhelmed mind

 

The way you express yourself, unconfined 

And allow me to feel as free as can be 

I admire your ability to be so kind 

 

Encouraging words and a protective nature intertwined 

You inspire me to conquer every given opportunity 

Your presence is like medicine to my overwhelmed mind

 

Hiding your deepest emotions, strength redefined 

You've experienced the worst of it all and persevered so gracefully 

I admire your ability to be so kind 

 

You are beauty, resilience, and compassion all combined

Constantly teaching me to live life fully

Your presence is like medicine to my overwhelmed mind

& I admire your ability to be so kind
