A Mothers Day Prayer

I pray for mothers and children who are fortunate to be around each other, may they be grateful.

For the mothers who silently mourn the loss of their unborn babies and children, and the children that mourn the loss of their mother, comfort them.

For the new mothers, give them strength to embrace the ups and downs of motherhood.

For the single mothers trying to hold it together, may they find the strength to do so.

For the mothers that need a break and can’t get one, that they may find moments to relax.

For the stay at home mothers and for the working mothers who work around the clock, may they find the right balance.

For the mothers raising a special child, give them the patience and strength to do so.

For the mothers caring for a sick child and for children caring for a sick mother, give them comfort and courage.

For the mothers rejected by their child, may they be reunited.

For the mothers trying to restart their career, may they find the right job.

For the mothers in need of self esteem and confidence, that they may see that they are fiercely and wonderfully made.

For the mother worrying and waiting for her child to return, may she hear her child’s voice to put her mind at ease.

For the mothers who have strained relationships with their children, may they find their way to each other.

For the mothers and children battling life threatening illnesses, give them strength and courage.

For the mothers that have lost their soulmate’s, may their children fill their loneliness with happiness.

Lastly, I pray for the mothers who have gone on before us, may they continue to watch over their children and be at peace.

This one’s for you


To the boy I fell in love with,
The man who stands beside me,
The the father of my children.

The constant,
Who has a front row seat,
To all I have to say and everything I do.

The provider,
That puts food on the table,
And given us all that we want.

The comforter,
Who was there I’m my darkest hour,
The one that makes me feel safe.

The lover,
Who’s love I can count on,
The one I choose to love.

The friend,
I still laugh with,
The one who calls me out.

The father,
Our children look upto,
Their first super hero.

So here’s to you,
To all that you do,
This one’s for you!

I wonder

It took me 11 years to finally put down these words. I think I had to make peace with her passing. Last night, I let myself wonder..

Flame

Like a moth to a flame

I am drawn to you.

Round and round I fly

In the warmth of your glow.

Fly to you,

And I can sore.

Fly into you,

And I’ll fall to the floor.

In the midst of nature

In the stillness of the morning,

Pretty birds fly by and sing so sweetly,

The monkeys chatter

And the stream glistens in the sun’s rays.

I sit in the midst of nature,

Captivated by the beauty that surrounds me,

I look to the clearing above

And watch how the frills of the heavens touch the trees.

The soft breeze moves through my hair,

As the sun sheds it’s morning glow,

Warmth runs through my veins,

And the hills call my name.

Alone in my mind,

Every feeling amplified,

In the midst of nature there is no need to hide,

Spread my hands and close my eyes,

Surrender to the universe

And it will give you wings to fly.

To my little Angel

This is for my baby girl…

Hello my little angel,

Your the apple of my eye.

You have no idea how you saved me,

The day you came alive.

You are my little miracle,

A reminder everyday,

That no matter how impossible life may seem

There will always be a way.

There are times when

I felt like I was fading,

Buts it’s your voice that guided me through,

There have been days that I couldn’t see the sun

And your eyes gave me strength.

So today my little angel,

Mama says thank you my baby…

Thank you for saving me.

You will always be a blessing

To the people in your life.

You will be an Angel

And you will always touch lives.

So stay true to your self my angel

And be all that you can be.

Mama loves you my sweet baby,

No matter where I may be.

Come alive

Sinking.

Your head can’t focus,

Your legs are buckling.

You call out for someone to hold you,

And there in those arms

It doesn’t matter if you go,

There is no fear or worry.

You feel its just easy to let every thing go.

A little worried voice calls out to you,

And for a second you focus

On those terrified little eyes.

You feel your strenght return,

The cold sweat begins to disappear,

And you realise that even though you feel like you have fallen apart

You want to survive

That little voice needs you to be alive.
