Motherhood is…

Sleepless nights and constant worry 

Holding your breath whenever they fall 

Dreaming for them while they sleep 

Running to them when they call 


Sometimes crying when they cry 

Living for their little laugh 

Tiny hugs and tiny giggles 

Wondering how they grew so fast 


Having your heart outside your body 

Learning with them as they grow 

Hoping, praying each step is right 

Loving them more than they’ll know 


Seeing yourself in their eyes 

Putting their health before your own 

The hardest and best thing in the world 

A pride so great it overflows
