I am a mother

I found this poem online today. It just about says it all...

I Am A Mother

I’ve loved my child right from the start
A feeling thats filled my entire heart
I went through the labour and suffered the pain
For many long hours with nothing to gain
I’ve spent sleepless nights being awake
Though its been a while my arms they still ache
I’ve sat and I’ve wondered of how he would grow
The love of my family that hed come to know
The sound of her voice as he learns to talk
Watching his steps as he tries to walk
I have a child that I really love so
I am his mother yet nobody knows
I spent all those months feeling him grow
I’ve lived through it all and have nothing to show
I don’t get invited to chat with young mothers
Because I don’t have a baby like all of the others
I’ve got some stretch marks that Id like to hide
But I don’t have a pram with a baby inside
The people I’ve known for so many years
They now avoid me, which adds to my tears
I don’t know how long I'll be feeling like this
But one thing I know my baby I miss
When Mothers Day comes it will be very hard
I wont have any flowers not even a card
And just because he’s not here with me
I still have a son I wish I could see
But one thing I know and this is for sure
I'll be his mother for evermore
