    i want to cradle you
    in arms that do not
    remember your softness
    warm against my breasts

    i want to nurture you
    outside a womb
    that did not feel
    you moving, forming
    perfect, whole
    and beautiful

    i want to rock you
    in a lap that
    never measured
    your weight
    and how much
    you'd grown

    i want to bathe you
    with hands that
    never touched
    your baby skin

    i want to kiss the
    wounds and wipe
    away tears
    and chase
    the boogey man
    out of your nightmares

    i still want to be the
    mother i might have
    been if you
    were born to me

    MS. A this is mothering in BLISS. Very beautiful piece and so much about what is at the heart of a woman so completely in love. Thank you for expressing this for my heart as well. :heart:
