Last night a dear friend and I joined our other friend,
her daughter and grandchildren for fish and chips on the beach.
We enjoyed watching these sweet little ones interact
with such kindness towards each other!Best friends for life!
They came unexpected, fifteen months apart
Forcing a young woman to make a brand new start
Tumultuous fathers, unable to commit
She took her broken heart, grieved a little bit
The Babies needed her to put her angst aside
So in a box she packed their life, took it all in stride
Found a cozy place to live, to raise children who are kind
Enrolled herself in school to cultivate her mind
Future deliberations, a job, own a car and home
Ammunition to squash the odds, and thrive out on her own
It’s been a year now, the kids are smiles and joy
A darling petite fairy and a soulful little boy
A mother with her children can flourish beyond thought
The innate power of motherhood is a mystery never taught
Though she may find loneliness knocking late at night
Enthusiasm for her offspring fills her with delight
Ambling carefree the promenade knowing mom is near
Past few years of oblivion, become obviously clear
Gifted treasures in her midst have helped her heart to heal
Closeness she’s honed with them has made happy endings real!
