I’m smiling

Yawning, clutching and winding down

My bed is a slumber haven for my weary head

I think of the day past and relive some of the events

No drama, no biting remarks, just love and respect

My mind fills with small arms around my neck

Tears I have wiped away and cheeks I have kissed

I wonder whether I have done things right

Did I say the right things?

Did I listen to them enough?

Did my children feel safe when I tucked them in tight?

I question my job as a parent on a daily basis

Some days I need improvement

And I hate to admit this

But today I think I did good

Today I was there when they wanted to talk

I was there with my shoulder

And my never ending embracing hug

I clutch the blankets closer

Sleep pulling me in

And I smile a deep smile as I surrender to it

My children are sleeping soundly

My days work is done.

I can be safe in the knowledge that today’s battles were won

There will be more days

When I feel lost and failing

But for today I smile and accept the glorious feeling of just being Mom
