A Mother’s Poem
I feel a little tug on my heart,
It’s like you’re up in heaven pulling on an invisible string,
Only I know our string is there.
No one sees me as a mummy.
I’m no longer innocent to the pressures of motherhood though.
I looked after you from the moment I knew you.
I worried about you.
I spoke to you.
I read to you.
I sung to you.
I soothed you.
I loved you every moment and still do.
Yes, I did all of these things but I couldn’t protect you.
Am I a mummy too?
