A Mother’s Love

It’s almost a no-brainer to write a special Mother’s Day post for my Harry Potter blog. After all, motherly love is such a central theme of the series. But on the other hand, it’s also a lot harder than I expected. What, exactly, is there to talk about that hasn’t been said again and again and again?

So I decided on a poem instead:

A mother’s love that saves his life
And runs within his skin
An evil stopped by sacrifice
That’s how it all begins

A mother’s love that lingers on
And shields him from harm
Departed, but not truly gone
She lives within his heart

A mother’s love transcends the grave
And leaves a lasting mark
A touch that burns, a love that saves
A candle in the dark

No wealth or bloodline matters more
Than hearts that overflow
With love, and homes with open doors
A welcome place to grow

A mother here and one who guards
Him from beyond the veil
A mother’s love, a lasting scar
A task he cannot fail

A mother’s love to guide him home
On her he can depend
Beside him in his hardest moment
‘til the very end

A darkness lifted by the light
Of love in spite of strife
Of courage, hope, and sacrifice
A precious gift of life
