    This longtime mother
    to all others
    finally gets her wish
    but, two other times -
    same situation -
    ended just like this:

    tears, pain, blood and strain
    unanswered questions to my
    own lifelong desire.

    So, I'm afraid to speak
    afraid to smile,
    afraid to plan and dream . . .
    terrified of losing what i
    am begging God to
    let me hold onto.

    Everything else -
    everything pleaded for
    in my past life
    seems so inconsequential
    when paired with motherhood.

    And w/tears

    I emotionally sympathize/empathize...
    for a that is a question you want answered...
    A pain.. that stains your dreams...
    Your means...
    OF family...
    Your chance at a possibility...
    I know why he took mines away from me...
    Becareful what you promise thee...
    Always follow through intuitively.
    Never doubt him...
    and with him...
    Keep your rhythm...
    the blessing are coming..

    And thank you for sharing...
    I do believe that was something i needed to see... ;)

    the breathlessness of
    cautious optimism
    tryin to be unattached to the outcome
    while keeping that hope alive
    in the back of your mind
    hold on to the light of faith, sistah
    your dream will come true
    believe it, I do


    much love, girl

    Rest in the assurance of God
    ...I say a prayer for you too
    that the desires of your heart
    come true...
    your words are felt sister...
