Ode to the Childless Single Woman

I am not a mom
At least not yet
having a baby days
I should forget.

Most my years
from ten on
It was I
that wanted a mom

Now today,
I yearn for more
I'd like to be what
I was created for.

To stroke her hair
100 times at night
To tuck her in with prayers
turn off the light

When the sun
would arise
I would see the sleep
in her eyes

Fix her breakfast
Pack her lunch
listen to woes
give a Mother's touch.

Maybe it would have been
a him instead
it doesn't matter
my dream is dead.

To cradle the little one
on my breast
Is something now
I must forget.

Don't feel sorry
for my woe.
Its true
I still don't know

Maybe somewhere
on this earth
there maybe
an unwanted birth

Or maybe
even yet
there is a man
I bet

his wife died
or even worse
perhaps
he is divorced

no matter what
his claim
I'd be glad
to take his name

If he he'd have a child
or two
doesn't matter
pink or blue

to marry a man
just for the kid's?
Oh my gosh
have I flipped my lid?

I wouldn't think
that be right
no its true
I want to be a wife

Its just I had to get
feelings out the way
You see
today was Mother's day.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
