Sending love on Mother’s Day …

to you
who carried your child
spilled blood, sweat and tears
to bring them into the world

to you
who’s chosen your child
and gathered them in
to become your family

to you
who yearned and longed for
a child of your own
feeling incomplete without

to you
who knows what it is
to carry your child
and to lose them all too soon

to you
who does it alone
no partner to share
but with abundance of love

to you
with two mums, two dads
each of you equal
to mother, nurture and love

to you
whose mother is beyond
the reach of touch and speech
yet carried with you
in your heart
