Poem a Day Challenge #2

Laurie’s prompt today is bird-themed.

You have come to me as a hummingbird
three times now.
Once for joy, once for strength, once
for hope.
Each time I have felt your loved and it overwhelmed
me, knocking air
out of my lungs and I have gasped
each time I realized that it was you – I felt
unworthy.
But you have loved all your grandchildren, held
them all even when we were
scattered far from your arms. You came
because I needed you,
needed your joy, your strength,
your hope.
But you also came to remind me
that I am worthy
of those gifts.
