Motherhood

Motherhood is a challenge,
I cannot lie one bit
About just how difficult
it is to raise kids.

I am not afraid to admit
That it is both rewarding
and nerve wrecking
at the same time.

Some people say
the rewards doesn’t come
until kids get older
but the reward is already here.

My kids are amazing human beings
and I am a better person
because of the unconditional love

they give and show me
no matter
how dysfunctional things are.

Layers Of Love

Love.

The blistering burn
that aches and aches.

Craving slight touches.
Whispering sweet words in ears.
Random kisses.
Hugs in abundance.
Regular phone calls.
Spontaneous texts.
Honest conversations.
Sweet sensations on and off the court.
Short hand-written notes
or long love letters.

Sincere appreciation.
Acceptance without question.
Showing understanding.
Giving simple gifts.
The spectacular sound of laughter.
Holding tingling hands,
fingers entwined.
Cuddling in bed.
Just the sound of rushed heartbeats.
Lost in each other’s eyes.
