I am

am
mother

I carried you inside of me

I felt you
kick and wriggle
and
turn and stretch


I held you in my arms
when
you cried and you hurt
and
you smiled and you laughed


I hold you still
every day
every heartbeat
every second
every breath

not in my womb
not in my arms
in my heart

I am not
A
mother

I
am
your
mother

I
am
yours
