birth pains

Why are they called BIRTH pains, if they last forever ? I love you so much Erin, but watching you birth an adult is much more painful, than watching a sweet baby enter the world. There is more blood, more gore and more pain. I do believe, I have to, that there will be more joy, too.

  I wrote this a long time ago, but it is still relevant and its for all of us…mothers of infants,mothers of teens , and mothers of adults.(sorry its long)

                             perfect and lovely, formed inside, I kept on growing

                                      without even knowing, just who you would be

                            then it came, the day you would arrive…when will this pain subside?

I love you more than I ever knew I could love, a piece of heaven for me from above

                                 when you were three, we butted heads,you blazed your own trail

                                slept in your big boy bed. I’d say be careful, you’d roll your eyes

                            Where is my baby….the one with the big brown eyes ?

     I love you more than I ever knew I could love, a piece of heaven for me from above

                          At eight, you shine so bright and I’m still the love of your life

                          you tell me I’m beautiful and I’m still hopeful…things will never change

          In a flash, time has passed, you choose your friends over me, this hurts….

                 more than delivery…

  I love you more than I ever knew I could love, you hurt me more than I ever knew I could hurt….what is this tearing, tugging and pulling at my heart ? When will it end ?

                   When did it even start ?

Now you’re grown up and I can see, the man that came from inside me

       I love you more than I ever knew I could love, my piece of heaven just for me from above.

  Birthpains that came from the start…I’ll carry you always inside of my heart. I love you.
