Motherhood – Part II


This is your body

soft like a pillow

like the place

she would want

to lay her head

and dream

how easy to make her smile

with the fullness of your curves


This is your body

its scars make up a map

she reads like Braille

this is where you fell of your bike

this is where you bruised your heart

this is where she came to you

how comforting to know

she can never be lost

in the shelter of your arms


This is your body

it aches like an open wound

it squeaks and cracks

like worn-out parts

it lifts her up

the lightest weight

you’ve ever born

how effortless it is

to carry your heart in your hands
