For Mothers

I recently had a conversation with a dear friend regarding her attempted VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). My dear friend was left mourning after the delivery ended in another Cesarean. While drug-free, vaginal deliveries are the safest and most responsible way to deliver in the majority of cases, there are unfortunately times when this does not happen. There are also times when babies are born still, lifeless and again mothers are left mourning. There are babies who never make it past the first trimester and mothers mourn their miscarrages. Pregnancy and childbirth are a very intimate and delicate process involving all types of emotions. After speaking with my friend, I was inspired to compose the following for her and every mother out there who feels a sense of sadness or loss regarding their exerience.

You are the power that brings forth life

Without you, humanity would end

You are the womb, the nourishment the love

You are where life begins

With God’s sweet grace

And your selfless loving ways

You are the reason for every season

The light in every day

God has a hand in everything

Every death and every birth

Always know that you are special

And regarded for all your worth

As you bring forth life

Hold in your heart this truth

It makes no difference in how they arrive

Only that they are a gift to you

For mothers mourning

For mothers who rejoice

For every single mother

Sharing their own mothers voice

Believe in yourself

And the beauty you hold

Enjoy each moment

Nourish your soul

Remember that circumstance

Is simply just that

Once a mother, always a mother

You are a miracle to marvel at
