and where a mother lies...

when a mother lies
do not dare
look into her eyes
she does  
what she is
 
when a mother lies
to the side
nurturing life
there is heaven
delivering sustenance
 
when a mother lies
in the world's eye
what is missed
is the sight
that she couldn't bear
so do not dare
ask why
 
when a mother lies
closing her eyes
there lay
a child  
a fairy
a princess
who once believed
in rainbows and unicorns
an angel to her own mother
a friend a sister a wife
but one role that becomes  
her
is  
mother
forever
 
and there lay
under her feet
the gateway
to heaven
we will never see it
for we are but heathen
failing to care
when she didn't lie
there..
