Mother’s Mantle by Neetu

Mother’s Mantle

She wraps her child
in the old, soft mantle

though the child is
grown into a woman
she has raised
with gentle hands
and tender affection

her daughter shivers
as chill pierces through 
holes in the aged fabric

a mother’s excuses
no longer explain
how they came to be
in the first place

through the tight weave 
that could never rip.
