For My Sister, The Mother

You are a mother.
Even to children who are not your own
and you are good at it.
I wonder if God misses you in heaven.
I wonder if the children in heaven have any idea
what they are missing.
I wonder if they pray to God
to send them to earth
to be cared for by you.
I wonder if they are jealous of your children.
I am.

You are a mother.
To children who are not your own.
You inspire me.
