Dear Mama, You Will

Dear Mama,
both Beautified and Broken by birth,
You will
feel Whole again.

Dear Mama,
Delighted and Distressed
by your babe’s endless cries,
You will
find Quiet again.

Dear Mama
filled with both Gladness and Guilt,
You will
find Peace again.

Dear Mama
both Cherishing and Challenged
by your child’s constant need of you,
You will
find Space to breathe again
(and it’s okay to want that).

Dear Mama
both Beaming and Bruised
by the work that consumes you
You will
find Rest again.

But for now
to Cry and to Celebrate
to Grieve and to Glory
all at once,

Dear Mama,
though you may be
bewildered and beaten,

He will
carry you through
