I Am A Mother

Iíve loved my child right from the start
A feeling thats filled my entire heart
I went through the labour and suffered the pain
For many long hours with nothing to gain
Iíve spent sleepless nights being awake
Though its been a while my arms they still ache
Iíve sat and Iíve wondered of how she would grow
The love of my family that shed come to know
The sound of her voice as she learns to talk
Watching her steps as she ties to walk
I have a child that I really love so
I am her mother yet nobody knows
I spent all those months feeling her grow
Iíve lived through it all and have nothing to show
I donít get invited to chat with young mothers
Because I donít have a baby like all of the others
Iíve got some stretch marks that Id like to hide
But I donít have a pram with a baby inside
The people Iíve known for so many years
They now avoid me, which adds to my tears
I donít know how long Ill be feeling like this
But one thing I know my baby I miss
When Mothers Day comes it will be very hard
I wont have any flowers not even a card
And just because sheís not here with me
I still have a daughter I wish I could see
But one thing I know and this is for sure
Ill be her mother for evermore
