Long days
short years
(more than a)
Few tears
Keep them close
But at arms length
Weak in the knees
Or beg for strength
Tight squeezes
Pushing back
Extreme connection
(then the lack)
Doing your best
Doubting all
Full heart
Trust fall
We carry them for a time
But they’re within us for good
The push and pull
Of motherhood
