~ Confessions of a working mother
If you knew how many times I kissed you in your sleep,
For missing out on your play time.
If you knew how many times I rubbed my cheeks against yours,
To make up for the calls of mama.
If you knew nothing and nobody stands before you,
In the eyes of your mama!
Would you then know that of all the things mama has to do,
Leaving you is the hardest one to do?
I have never known love like the comfort of holding you
I have never known pleasure like the joy of kissing you
I have never known strength like the will to fight for you
I have never known fear like the thought of losing you
You redefine me and everything I have ever believed
I will never know a life again without your life blooming in it

This is the end, my dear
Of you and me together as we
I don’t know if you even felt that about me
I am protesting now, see. Would you have that from me?
I wish you were a better man
I wish you were a better husband
I wish you were a better father
I wish you were all those things
Before it was too late
But even if you couldn’t be all of those
Could you not be a good human being atleast?
They say love can move mountains
Was my love not enough?
Were we ever in love?
Did we even have a marriage?
Maybe it was all an ugly display
That has turned into ruin now
Do I laugh or cry?
At this deliverance and solitude.
I love you so much. If I could say it enough, if you could hear it enough. Everyday you light up my heart, my soul, my mind. My little miracle. My sunshine. My happiness.
Happy 1st Birthday my love, my angel.
I love you to the moon and back, to eternity and beyond.
God has been the kindest to have bestowed you upon us.
Im so proud of you. Everyday you light up my heart.
Thank you for being. You make it all worth it. 💕
I’ll put you to sleep
I’ll sing you a song
When you open your eyes, I won’t be around
Do not fear my dear
Do not cry
I know you can’t see me but I’m nearby
Our souls are intertwined
Our bodies are tied
My heart beats for you, we’ll be together in time
The best part of my day is when you lie down beside me. You close your eyes, and drift off to sleep. I look at you, and you’re so tender, and pure. All my upheaval is put to rest, the noises fade away. I look at you and living is the best thing to do.
My dear daughter, you’ve my heart and soul. I love you.

Don’t wander off,
Not in the forbidden part of Forest
Not in the places familiar
The fog that still feels warm
Don’t wander off,
Don’t chase the dragonflies
And try to catch them
What once belonged doesn’t anymore
Don’t look for the maze to get lost
What doesn’t belong is free to fly
So fly to the infinite Land, and
don’t wander off.

What do you dream of?
To be a face in the crowd,
To be and not be.
