Today’s guest post comes from the talented Lucy at The Parent Game. She messaged me on Facebook back in the middle of May explaining that she had written a poem for us about our impending arrival. I was really touched and had tears in my eyes as I read it, so I had to share it here.
A moment in time, a flash passing through
The moment they first thought about you.
A moment in thought, an idea, a spark,
Lighting a newly-found place in their hearts.
A moment in need, they first pictured your face
And knew it was you that would take up that place.
A moment in hope, every step of the way,
Knowing you’d find your way home one day.
A moment in faith, believing in you,
Their strength in each other would help pull you through.
A moment in nurture, this tiniest seed
She lovingly nourished your every last need.
A moment in wonder, in life all brand-new,
And knowing this journey was all about you.
About the Author:
Lucy started The Parent Game in 2012 for parents of not just babies and toddlers, but those with older children and students too. As her children have a large age gap, she was meeting a lot of mums who had no confidence and who felt they just weren’t ‘making the grade’. That’s why she chose the title, because, sometimes, parenting can feel like a game. Connect with her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
