A rose in bloom

5th Birthday

Delicate bud that I know
so well, my duty was to
watch you grow
Such a young and
precious thing
it’s time to spread those
wings
Time to hear you sing
your song of life.

Unfold those petals
the ones which are shaping
making you the
beauty that you are.

Fragrant and slowly
blossoming
gaily dancing in a
banter of breezes
placing smiles on faces
and pleasing others who
gaze upon such a
wonderous site.

By no means perfect
(for nothing ever is)
but in my eyes
you’re really quite
unique

And to those who might
just fall in love with you

…Well

You will stun them with
the charms that you’ll
soon learn are yours
as you reach your element
grow into the fullest
of your bloom.

And as I watch you grow
I feel as if I know some of the
pangs of motherhood
without the pain of ever
giving birth.

16 now

*We all go through life facing many personal challenges. I’ve faced quite a few in my time, I thought the biggest one was nursing my late partner until she took her last breath and then the challenge of letting her go but, the biggest challenge of my life so far, has been raising Chloe. I first met her when she was 4 years old and, have been raising her by myself since she was 9.  I had no idea that parenting was such a challenge because, in as much as I’m trying to teach her about love, compassion and, caring about others instead of being selfish, she is teaching me what it takes to be a mother.
She is 16 now and, we’ve made it this far. LOL
