Daughter Poem

I struggled with post natal depression for 2 1/2 yrs after my 1st and only child was born, The bond between us was weakened through this terrible illness. After being given the all clear I went on to wrestle with feelings of guilt for not being as good a mother as i could have been. I wrote this poem when I was feeling my very best after going through all of this. I hope you enjoy it as it came straight from my heart. I wouldn't be without my baby for the world. I now know I have nothing to be feeling guilty for.

Looking At My Child

©

Published: September 2008

I look at my child as she looks at me
And into her eyes I look and I see,
The innocence that fills her unspoiled soul
These moments I wish I could treasure and hold.

But my baby is growing and influences are strong
I hope she remembers the right from the wrong,
I've tried hard to instill these virtues inside
But regardless, she still fills me happiness and pride.

The job of a Mother can be very hard
With tears full and plenty your heart can feel scared,
When you look at your baby filled with happiness and glee
No better reward for a Mother can be.

As hard as it is or as it can be
I'd never trade this experience for anything you see,
The innocence she holds she has passed on to me
And a much better person she's helped me to be.

yep I like the poem very much. I'm also the mother of 7 years old daughter, and it's true, the role of a mother is difficult but when the seed start growing into a plant then you cherish it and all the pain goes. Yes I can proudly say that I learnt a lot from my daughter and getting better day by day with her. AND enjoying my childhood in her company. And thankful to god for this precious gift. May god bless her always and she gets the bestest of the best in her life.
