Motherhood comes when you least expect it
Though others plan it
For some it’s thrust upon them
Questions race through your mind
Your heart races a lot faster
And sometimes you can’t think straight
Because you’re uncertain about the future
Will you be able to give your child
the best possible life?
Can I handle birthing life?
Are my child bearing hips
Will I make it?
I can feel you growing in me
I know you before you even know yourself
I have named you
Before you have left my womb
You will come to know me as mother
Will you be as handsome as your father
Or will you be as beautiful as your mother?
I am yet to know you
But I love you already
And I can’t wait to see you
I am your mother
