Between a Child and Mother

Love is an affection
That we share with another
Often an affection shared
Between a child and mother

As a mother’s love is shared
It is shared in many ways
Discipline and life lessons
To stick to in every day

There are times when Mom’s disliked
Met with misunderstanding
Fondness of her disappears
But love for her still standing

These are times for both to learn
To get to know each other
Love, still an affection shared
Between a child and mother

This was a poem that was inspired to me at a time when I was experiencing changes with my child. These changes happened at a time when I needed to get to know myself due to my Epileptic Seizures. At first I felt unloved and unwanted but as I got in touch with the changes in our lives I started to understand what was happening.

As a parent, it is very important to understand the difference between being loved and being liked. We share a strong love with our child but when they encounter our loving lessons they can end up not liking us. As much as being liked is wanted, sharing our love through our lessons is something that we must do as a parent. When our kids push us away, it can give us the feeling that we are unloved but that is not the case. Love from our kids still exists even in times when they do not like our role in their lives.

As we each enter a time in our lives to learn and grow, we each need to try new things to get to know ourselves. It can be a frustration for a parent to share their love and have it be refused but we must give our kids time to experience so that understanding can be found. We watch our kids learning but we must also allow ourselves to learn new lessons to get to know our kids. In times of learning and growth, for our child and for our person, it is still a time when we are sharing our love together in our own personal way.
