A Mother’s Eyes

Hello Friends. Sadly, my mum died in 2020 but I published this poem about her caring support of me, following my diagnosis of Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. I’m glad she got to see this.

En français:

Salut les amis. Malheureusement, ma mère est décédée en 2020, mais j’ai publié ce poème sur son soutien attentionné envers moi, à la suite de mon diagnostic de maladie de Parkinson à début précoce. Je suis content qu’elle ait pu voir ça.

A Mother’s Eyes.

She tells me she prays for me each night
She insists that I will be alright
She believes a cure will end my plight
You cannot hide the pain in a mother’s eyes.

She says it’s unfair that I am ill
She gives me her love and strength of will
She walks with me as I climb uphill
You cannot hide the pain in a mother’s eyes.

She lifts me up when I feel disdain
She holds my hand when I am in pain
She points to the sun when I see rain
You cannot hide the pain in a mother’s eyes.

She listens to what I need to tell
She responds with the right words so well
She says there is hope beyond this hell
You cannot hide the pain in a mother’s eyes.

She insists that I try to stay fit
She says she’s tried to make sense of it
She says on down days I must use wit
You cannot hide the pain in a mother’s eyes.

She admits that God must hear her plea
She offered to bare my ills for me
She is my amazing mum, you see
You cannot hide the pain in a son’s eyes.
