My mother died 6 million deaths

My mother died 6 million deaths in that Hell
and she survived
and she restored to life entire generations
She taught us that death is a part of life
but now in hind-sight – I declare —
dear Mom —

it’s not just a part of life—rather it’s the seed of new life.
…in exponentially greater quantities and qualities
and I — the son of the survivor —

I declare that I am the proud child
of a nation of lovers of living–
lovers of life…
you died, Mom–six million deaths
–to enable an entire nation to be fruitful and multiply
—to passionately embrace life
—until the end of time
