The Circle of Life


The Circle of Life
By Linda Schwartz from Reflections, 2010

she ushered me into the world
and at the beginning of my life
held me gently in her arms
nurtured and fed me
bathed and dressed me
cleaned up my accidents
pushed me in a stroller on glorious sunny days
and loved me unconditionally

I ushered her out of the world
and near the end of her life
held her gently in my arms
comforted and fed her
bathed and dressed her
cleaned up her accidents
pushed her in a wheelchair on glorious sunny days
and loved her unconditionally
