I AM STILL A MOM

27283adf29a35946a708fe0e3476b780

You held your baby Lovingly in your belly
Sang for him a lalluby
Hummed for her a nursery rhyme
Rubbed your belly when he kicked
Touched your heart when she moved
You remember every emotion felt
A tear goes down your face
Remembering baby is no longer there
Take heart dear one
You are still a mom
Years may have passed
Her memory lingers on
His moments you wished still there
Holding
Every bit of her
Every bit of him
In your heart
She may have left you before seeing the sun
He may have gone before you held him
Wipe that tear away
You are still
His mom
Her mom
