To love unconditionally to our children takes patience and full acceptance
Mothers bonded to their newborn more than their partners
For the newborn has no way to communicate except by crying
And mother’s heart melt easy and even can sense far and future accidents
As if the umbilical cord is intangible and operates remotely from 0 to old age.
I love you forever and always, says a mother while singing a lullaby to her baby.
We cry when our children curse us and we stood our ground and tell them no,
we cannot accept their cursing since we are mothers who gave them life but
only loaned to us by God.
We go about our daily chores mindful of our children, 24 hours and 7 days a week
as they just came out of our bodies like magical creatures
We cannot stop holding them and give them breastmilk every two hours
We forgo our needs for a moment
And then they have grown as young adults, they say “mom do text me ahead of time for any meeting, as I’m busy”
We pursed our lips, we forgive and understand for they will be our children forever
And always, in our thoughts, we forgo looking for another partner and gave all our time with them
Knowing that at the end and every time, they will always need us their mothers
For motherhood is forever.
