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.
