To My Daughters, Who Taught Me how to Love

You taught me how to be a mother,
Leading me with pudgy toddler fingers,
Sticky kisses
And questions about questions about questions.

You made it easy.
I did not know how
To give of myself,
But you knew how to find my love
And take what I then gave gladly.

You led the way,
Your love helped my love grow
And blossom,
Unconditionally.

I didn’t think I could.
Now I think perhaps I can.
Because of you.

    I think having ‘pink’ ones helps. Whether they are blue or pink you discover things in you that you had no idea you had. It also brings a weight of responsibility that never really goes.
