Mother and Child - Gustav Klimt


Upon your smile child I build my hope and strength


You, who have been
torn from the mud,
you are not lingering on hatred
instead you smile to me.

Tears like walls of waves
fill suddenly my eyes.
So short a life but already
a long memory of pain!
A world threatening you
because it is blind to
your pureness and
to your right to live in peace.

A fragile creature you are,
stretching out your arms
and smiling at me! At me,
more frail than you!
I fear for you, tender petal
in the storm! Where are those
who can still perceive the
fragrance of your innocence?

For just a moment
I lift you in my arms,
enfolding you with warmth.
I let you trace a
movement of joy within me.
A happy song surges
from the deepness of my heart,
you and me in consonance
with the Divine dream
of a world resplendent in harmony.

Child, with your smile
you awaken me from my
indifference,
my sadness,
my anxiety
and my negligence
do not get weary, child,
engrave your symbols of
faith and trust on to my heart!

And maybe one day
not too far away in the future,
we shall walk hand in hand,
in the same direction,
you and me, we and the world
towards God,
towards the Light
towards Love.
You and me, we and the world,
on the paths prepared by The One
Who manifests Himself in your smile,
showing us the way .

Margherita,

I would say that only a mother
would know this feeling, but I would be wrong,
for as I continued to read, I could see where
a father would say,
thank you
for writing his heart...

and an orphan would say,
could you be, my mother?

I am rarely speechless after reading a piece here in Passions,
but right now I cannot find the words.
..for there are no words to express how this beautiful piece made me feel.
By far your best I have seen..
By far the best of many I have seen here.
~Smiles & Hugs, Nancy~

~Somewhere in my heart I'm always
dancing with you in the summer rain~

Margherita, I was going to copy
and paste my favorite part, but
couldn't. Why, because the whole
poem is my favorite part. This is
one of the most beautiful poems I
have ever read, friend. Thank you for sharing.  
Hugs,
Ethel

this is truly an outstanding write...
very very impressive poetess Margherita.
take a bow!!

You're the best I've ever felt ...
it's so wrong not to be with you.
It's getting harder to stay away,
it stops my heart just to be with you.

You have touched my heart dear Poet friends with your very generous comments.
When our words reach out and stir something within then our mission is fulfilled ....
May all children of the world be treated with love and respect! There is too much pain in so many little hearts ...
My love to you.
