To My Baby – From Mama

When I have love and can’t love myself, I don’t know where to put it so I imagine giving it to you…

This one is for my baby. My baby girl, with crescent shaped eyes, contagious laughter, a cheeky smile, and rosy cheeks.

Mama loves you. Mama loves you so much and I know you make my day.

I would hope that our days are rainbows and sunshine but I know, time will come when your eyes will have so many things to ask me.

And Mama knows….that she won’t always know what to tell you.

Mama won’t know what to tell you when you look up at me and ask me why there is darkness in the world.

Mama won’t know what to tell you when you discover the never ending corridors in the tiny home of your heart, that never knows how to stop loving no matter how many people hurt you, no matter how many times, and no matter for how long.

Mama won’t know what to tell you if you know nothing but love even if you cry tears of blood.

Mama won’t know what to tell you if that big little heart of yours is brave or foolish.

Mama won’t know what to tell you if you ask me why. Why you are this way and that.

Mama won’t know what to tell you when you just can’t stop giving and giving, and healing even if you have cuts and bruises of your own.

Mama won’t know what to tell you when you hide yourself away because the world never knows your heart.

Mama won’t know what to tell you when you are just so much more than the naked eye can comprehend; when your beauty is full of complexities that no one can fathom.

Mama won’t know what to tell you when you ask me why ice can never build in your heart.

Mama won’t know a lot of things, Baby. Mama won’t know why having a heart and soul like yours is so lonely. Mama won’t know how to take the pain away. Mama just won’t know.

Because all of it lives inside her too.

Mama loves you. Please love her too.
