“mother-in-law” – mother’s day week of original poetry


like the step parent poem, a writing for one’s mother-in-law, can also be challenging

when the connections are made, these can be rewarding indeed



You weren’t sure if you liked me at first.

You’d glance at me from the corner

of your eye

and I’d glance back,

neither of us sure.

But we found we share someone very

precious to us both.  And the

sharing has shaped us.  Patience

with each other has had its reward

through the light in your child’s eyes.

Our laughter, when you and I are

together, has found its echo

in her voice.

You and I have each held

her hand and now

we’ve found a common


for each other.
