A MOTHERS HEART YEARNS

When you were a babe~

Close within my womb~

I rocked you to the sounds~

I yearned you to learn.

 

I rocked you~

I talked to you~

I rubbed your nakedness. ~

I held you and caressed you~

While you were within.

You came about~

I continued to nurture~

Watching your every breath. ~

I sang to you~

Whispered to you~

As I let you hear the sounds I thought~

 Were best.

 

I laid on the bed with you cradled in my palms~

Giving you special private times. ~

I held you~

And played with you~

All your delightful giggles were mine.

 

I woke up with nightmares~

That you were under water~

And I stretched out to reach you~

To no avail.

I gave you all I had~

Protecting you as much as I could. ~

I enjoyed our sharing~

As a proud mother should.

I was in awe of your talents~

Even though you might not of seen. ~

I tried to hold you in balance~

As you slipped away from me.

Now I yearn for your heart to once again~

 Love mine. ~

Now I yearn for your love~

And realize it must take time.

 

Come back to me my little man~

Come back to me my joy~

Come back to me my babe in the womb~

Come back to me my giggling toy.

I love the journey of life with your son that you portrayed here in poetic form. The love of a child will always be cherished even though he is now lost. Very poignant pictures. A pleasure to read, thank you.

Oh, Lisa this was just beautiful! The words touched me deeply as i have my own little man who is now 27 and who i simply...adore! i hope the last few lines don't mean that you are estranged?

Sigh..i hope not. My daughter vacillates between love and hate, and - it's very difficult!

Awesome and sharing!
