.. a calming word

gives you that look
they call the stink eye,
you know what that means,  
you’d better not try,  
  
used to warn me,  
where not to roam,  
“you’ll be 6 feet under    
in a sea full of stones!”,  
   
“sit your ass down  
and hush up!” she’d say,  
and “eat all that broccoli”  
or you’ll pay the old way,  
   
smiling like a crook  
getting tucked into bed,  
a pat on the cheek,  
and a kiss on your head :-)  
   
first thing you shout  
when you enter your home,  
you call out when scared,  
or comforts you alone,  
   
luck of the draw  
that real special one,  
greatest cheerleader,    
for a daughter or son,  
   
a word like a blanket,    
transcending secure clam,  
none more relieving,  
as saying the word  
   
mom.
