used to wrap myself in a shroud of pain
soft wicked blanket
today I've bundled it up
it's out by the curb with the rest of the trash
drown my life now in smiles
blue eyes bright
sing my name in the morning light
blessed among women for the joy
motherhood a gift eagerly sought
earnestly held
future in my keeping
children teaching me as I teach them
wonder again that a thing so precious
lays a hand in mine
turns up two faces of laughter
greet the dawn with joy
