~To Be A Mother Is A Gift~

There are times when I feel I don't have all the answers and I 
Often have to ask God to give me the wisdom and understanding

Because being a mother, I don't always know what to do
Every day is a learning process, But I am eager and


Motivated to be the best mother I can be, I am
Overwhelmed at times but still so very
Thankful to God for blessing me with such a gift
Honored to be not only a mother but a friend
Ecstatic in watching my daughter grow and 
Realizing that I was chosen to guide and nurture her

Is truly an amazing and overwhelming feeling
Since I had lost my first child, I'm still haunted

At the thought of who she or he would have been but

God has given me a second chance and I am so grateful
I get to wake up each day staring into her beautiful face
Fighting back the tears of happiness she has graced me with 
Thinking to myself, I love her more than anything

    thank you for the comments on my poems, I want to say this piece touches my heart on a very deep level, as a mother I understand your feelings, however the loss of a child is something I pray I never know and am so sorry you had to endure that. I can not even imagine what you went through and still go through. stay strong and God bless you

    I feel in this everything a Mum feels Tyesha, the overwhelming feeling of new responsibility for this little thing that now clings to every single part of us, and looks to us for everything.. The love you have for your daughter and your wish to be the best Mother is so evidently lovingly expressed in this poem.. Thankyou so very much for your comments on my poem and when your own little girl was born, such a journey and such a wait for those miracle tears .!! lots of love, Jo xx

    Our children are our most precious gifts, and you are a grateful, nurturing, loving mom. Your daughter lucked out too, big time. So beautiful. Love, Shar

    Thank you for your kind words and I thought it might be helpful to someone, if they read it, maybe they won't make the same mistakes of not telling that I did and maybe it will bring closure, who knows, but thank you from the bottom of my heart....Aleera

    This is beautiful and sad at the same time. I'm blessed with my miracle child, biological, and my other miracle, adopted. My son had heart surgery 3 timed before 5 months old and I almost lost him as he did die on the O.R. table, I've had loss and a gift at the same time. This shows you are a true mother not just a woman that had a baby. You are blessed and by the way "eraser" is a fantasy, lol, but if I ever do find him, I'm hanging on, lol....Love Aleera

    My sentiments exactly. You portrayed the essence of motherhood very well in your acrostic. I remember how my children, now grown, brightened each day. And we had fun!!!! Thanks for this endearing write and for your comments.

    No one could deserve a "second chance" more than a loving nurturer like you, Tyesha. I had tears in my eyes when I read of your loss, but I'm so happy you have been blessed with a beautiful daughter. Love, Carolyn
