If Ever You Wonder

For our babies. For yours. For mine. For all of our little loves. If ever they wonder about love, about loss, about life. If ever they doubt this world. They should know how much they are loved. A mother’s love can live in the wind and the waves. It will always find them … If Ever They Wonder…

If ever a moment catches you,

A shadow in time chases you,

Causing you to wonder if love is real,

Think of me,

And know that it is,

Know that you are my heart,

My air, my smile,

Know that long before your existence,

A prayer was whispered into the wind,

The desire to love you was strong,

If ever you feel alone in this world,

Think of me,

And know that nothing has ever captured me,

The way you do,

You are my very own miracle,

The simplest smile on your sweet baby lips,

Can cause an ache deep in my heart,

The smell of your soft baby skin,

Can cause my eyes to fill,

For no reason at all,

Your musical little giggles,

Can fill a whole house with the sound of love,

Pure and true,

The way you fit so perfectly,

Snuggled right in my arms,

So trusting,

It touches my very core,

If ever you wonder,

If ever you doubt,


Think of me,

And know that every single day,

I’m honored…

Honored to be your mommy.


I Will Always Be Your Home

Some days my heart is so full, the words just pour out. This one is for my little ones so that they may always know – they will always have me.

The sun settles over me with a blinding brilliancy,
As I watch you, my babies,
You are the most beautiful beings,
My heart radiates with a magical love,
Certainly there is no greater,
It is yours and always yours,
To carry with you on your travels,
I will always be your home,
Your refuge,
A safe place to hide,
A shelter from life’s storms,
I will always be your strength
On days when you need to fall,
I will be your ear
On days when you feel lost,
I will laugh with you forever,
For your giggles light my way,
I will hold you
Long after you are too big for my lap,
And, my heart will carry you
Long after the sands of time have faded away
You will never be alone,
My loves.
Your momma’s love will fly with the angels and surround you…
On and on and on…

Days of Rain

I wrote this poem almost a year ago. R and I had just received some interesting (not-so-good) news and I was feeling scared. We’d been discussing making some big changes (a leap of faith, if you will) to our lives and careers and it wasn’t the right time for bad news. My release is to write. I’m a writer. It’s what I do. When I’m stressed or worried or sad, I cry – then, I write. This one seemed like a good one to share today. I don’t know why really. It’s just that we ALL have days of sun, and days of RAIN…

Days of Rain

There are days when the rain comes down hard,

When the sky is dark, and the world is darker,

Despair seems too close to home,

And, faith too far away.

Yet, behind the dark there is always light,

A choice unclear,

A choice still there,

While answers wait, happiness is still ours to make,

Reflect in quiet moments,

Hold on to your joy,

Embrace all the love that you know to be true,

Let it guide you through and through,

On the other side you’ll find a way, to look back and know …

                                                          why you made it through today.
