What If I was just a Mum?
Just a Mum that has kissed you everyday of your life.
Just a Mum that remembers the moment I met you as the most precious one.
Just a Mum that takes you to school everyday and picks you up.
Just a Mum who gives you the best food so that you grow big, strong and healthy.
Just a Mum who believes that the right way to bring you up is to make you kind, thoughtful, smart and generous – by doing my best to be all those things everyday.
Just a Mum who tucks you into bed every night and reads to you – not for your academic progress – but because you love it.
Just a Mum who allows you freedom and space when you need it, not when you want it.
Just a Mum who remembers every touch and smile you have ever given me.
Just a Mum who feels rewarded everyday by being in your presence.
Just a Mum who marvels everyday that you are mine.
Just a Mum who is happiest when you are smiling.
Just a Mum who loves you, no matter what.
Just a Mum.
And that’s enough.
Because I’m not just any Mum, I’m your Mum.
