Ear print on my arm

Milk spill on my chest

Growing head tucked 

Beneath my chin

 

Nappies

Naps

Night waking

Never ending care

Not much time

 

I’m her person assistant 

And personal chef

As well as her partial food source 

 

There have been tears

Over milk- spilled 

Lack of milk supply 

 

There’s been fear 

 

But so much love 

And growing 

 

Stillness, snuggled 

and cuddles 

 

Carrier close to my heart 

So near I can kiss your hair

 

Caressing your head

Singing you to peace

And seeing you fall asleep
