Before I begin, I would like to say that this is just a little free verse poem. I found an "I Am" poem that I did a few years ago, and thought it would be really cool to do one from Esme's POV.

I am the compassionate mother.

I wonder if my family is happy.

I hear the love in my husband's voice.

I see the world optimistically.

I want to ensure the content of my family.

I am the compassionate mother.

I pretend that my bed on Isle Esme wasn't wrecked.

I feel forever in love.

I touch my husband's hands tenderly, the same way that he touched my heart.

I worry about having to say goodbye.

I cry not physical tears, but my emotions, they still remain.

I am the compassionate mother.

I understand that he'll always be true.

I say that where there's kindess, there is hope.

I dream no more, and miss it so.

I try to see the good in life.

I hope that this will last forever.

I am the compassionate mother.

If you like it, let me know. I'd be more than happy to do these poems for the other characters. Thanks!
