Mom

She is so very adept
At so many things
Hiding feelings of pain
Making enemies
Of those that she loves
For their own sake
Keeping secrets
That would free her
From daggers
Thrown her way
Building others up
And standing back
To let them shine
She has
Wings of an angel
Strength of a diamond
A feather-soft heart
And never enough time
