Before I was a mum

Before I was a Mum
I never looked into teary eyes and cried
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mum
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn’t want to put her down
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn’t stop the hurt
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much
I never knew that I could love someone so much
I never knew I would love being a Mum.

Before I was a Mum
I didn’t know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn’t know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby
I didn’t know that bond
between a mother and her child
I didn’t know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mum
I had never got up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mum
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mum
