Prose For Thought – NaPoWriMo Day 25

Today marks Day 25 of NaPoWriMo. That’s 25 days in a row that I have written a poem. I was a little worried about Prose For Thought next week and that I might be all poemed out but…I do have have a backlog of poems from a few years back so all is not lost!

Thank you again to everyone who linked up for last week’s poetry and prose installment. I was also very chuffed that Emma from Crazy With Twins linked up Wednesday Words with Prose For Thought.

This week’s poem is about being a Mum to a new baby. I found it so difficult when I first had Grace. Trying to read a small person who was brand new and she was trying to read me. I’ve tried to sum it up here.




I’m Your Mum

Brand new, untouched, not spoilt by things

You take your first breath, a life begins

You’ve no expectations, just use your cry

To tell me what’s needed to help you get by


As days go on and you start to grow

Things get easier, I’m starting to know

What you want and what you need

When you’re tired or if you need a feed


I’ll know you like no one else has or can

Like no other woman or no other man

Brought you into this world is what I have done

Darling, I love you. I’m your Mum.
