Written as a gift to my parents, Christmas 1987, suitable for framing. I had left corporate for freelance writing and editing and did not have any money for presents, that year, so I wrote the poem before I headed home on Christmas morning and then rewrote it on a good paper.
“Born of Love”
You taught me how to stand apart,
to understand and be myself.
You gave me the courage to walk alone
when none would join me.
You showed me how to look through words
into the worlds that others live in.
You taught me how to listen
with my heart and dare to make
but those born of love.
What does that #BeWoW mean? Be Writing on Wednesday to Be Wonderful on Wednesday and make the world a better place to visit.” See Ronovan’s site, Ronovan Writes for his contribution, more information, and links to other people’s contributions.
