The Joy of Motherhood


DSC07105Nervous I was, afraid I would lose

My freedom, my ability to choose

How and where my time was spent

I’d need to plan when and where I went-

I worried about all that could disappear

The future was something I honestly did fear..


Then you entered my life and turned it around-


Instead of losing myself; a new me I found

Impulsive I’d been, patience I acquired

Where weak I had been, being strong was required

Never knew I could give of myself cent percent

For you I knew I would always be present

Time I had not valued in life previously

You taught me to use my time judiciously

To do the right thing always, you made me strive

In the throes of exhaustion, you made me feel alive


You make me feel beautiful every single day

Because I could create you, perfect in every way

Remember that forever I have lost my heart 

Wherever you go, of you it will always be a part!
