Unconditional Love

I held in me tonight
A deep deep gratitude for my children
Feeling into my heart
How much I love
Them
Not just parts of them or even the good parts of them
But all of them
Their whole being
For all that they are
Accepting the places I know I went wrong
In them
Did not see
Forgot the gratitude
For a moment
The challenges and the turmoil  This unconditional love

For a moment tonight
I held the deepest gratitude in my heart
For my children
Their teaching of me
It reminded me
Why I was here
Who would I be without
Them
How would life
Have possibly become
Dare not think it
No other way
Would fulfil this
Part of my own heart

This moment
I hold the deep love
And I keep holding
For what I know exists
For those in their innocence
Mother knows what only a mother can know
A deep pain a fear a guilt
All tied into that deep love
Heart wrenching
Never to be forgotten
It lives on forever
Never ceasing
Never wanting it to end
No matter what arises
No matter the journey
Gratitude in my heart
For the love the deep searing passion of love
Never ever to be forgotten

I held in me tonight
A deep deep gratitude for my children
Feeling into my heart  

How much I love 

Them 

Not just parts of them or even the good parts of them

But all of them
Their whole being
For all that they are
Accepting the places I know I went wrong
In them
Did not see
Forgot the gratitude
For a moment
The challenges and the turmoil

This unconditional love.

Caroline Carey Poetry

About Caroline Carey

Caroline, born in 1960, grew up with a love for the wild, for nature, for animals and to dance. She wrote poetry and stories, created theater and explored the art of ritual of which she always held a fascination for. Not being of the academic type and being passionate about mystery, immagination and myth, she chose to spend her time alone with her many animals and the passion she had for ecstatic dance whether indoors or in nature. Her imagination was as wild as her life-style and by adapting the religious education insisted on by her family, she was able to recognise her own innate connection to Spirit and the spirit guides she became strongly connected to. Mothering her six, (now adult) children, Caroline has learnt the art of play, creativity, story telling and the deep surrender and unconditional love that motherhood bestows upon us.
