If I could take your pain away, sweet mama, I would do it.
I’d take the weight so you could breathe just for one short minute.
If I could mend your broken heart, I’d do it carefully.
I’d sew it with a vibrant thread that reminds you of your baby.
If I could take your anger and give you happy thoughts,
I’d gladly live through stormy days, just so you would not.
Your baby is yours forever, say their name with pride,
And know you aren’t alone in feeling so broken inside.
You’ll wonder how the hurt can go on any longer.
Days go by, you won’t forget, but I promise you’ll get stronger.
Your grief is just your mothering love, it’s fierce and will not quit,
But if I could take your pain away, sweet mama, I would do it.
