I AM A MOM, AND YET...


I AM A MOM

I am a mom, and yet...
my home is quiet and well kept,
you will not see any toys in the yard
or laying on the steps.


I am a mom, and yet...
here you won't find bottles or any bibs,
you'll never hear laughter from any of my kids.


I am a mom, and yet...
I get to sleep uninterrupted through the night,
no 3 am feedings anywhere in sight.


I am a mom, and yet...
no ring around the rosy or playing patty cake
a birthday cake with candles, I never get to bake.


I am a mom, and yet...
day or night, I can do anything I want to do
except what I yearn for most, be a mother to you.



I am a mom, and yet...
my arms are so very empty, as is my heart
I still cant believe that we were made to part.


I am a mom, and yet...
in Jesus arms is where you're laid to rest
joining you there now has become my quest.


I am a mom, and yet...
you left so quickly and out of the blue
never whispered hello, only goodbye to you.
I hope that love from me is all you ever knew.


I am a mom, and yet...
I wish I could wrap my arms around you & hold you tight
but I know that you're safe and happy, warm in heavens light.

I meant to comment when I saw this and just couldn't because I cried too much.

Still crying, but wanted to let you know how moving it was. Thank you for sharing.
