My Child

You are my bugaboo
Never a word more true
Causing sleepless nights
For your safety
For your future
For all I can’t do
The source of my power
To leap to your defence
The source of my weakness
Riddled with fear
I try to balance the two
But no matter which
I am most thankful for you

    1. Thank you. They are amazing and add so much to life, but they do add different fears because we wish them a wonderful life. We just need to remind ourselves that we brought them into the world, but it is still their journey to experience – the good and the bad.
