Afghan Women’s Writing Project | Mother

Afghan Women’s Writing Project | Mother.

I never felt so good as when I was with you
Your warm hugs
Your powerful support
The single word that guided me
When your presence shined on me, I felt like a star

You made me laugh
And when you made me cry, you held me in your arms
You bloomed like a rose through the day

Today I am a mother myself,
And still, I wish I could be with you.
