Marked by motherhood1 Nov 2020


Ear print on my arm

Milk spill on my chest

Growing head tucked 

Beneath my chin




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
