Poem- Before i was a mum

Before I Was A Mum....

Before I was a Mum…
I made and ate hot meals.
I had unstained clothing.
I had quiet conversations on the phone.

Before I was a Mum…
I slept as late as I wanted.
And never worried about how late I got into bed.
I brushed my hair and my teeth every day.

Before I was a Mum…
I cleaned my house each day.
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to lullabies.

Before I was a Mum…
I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunisations.

Before I was Mum…
I had never been puked on,
Pooped on,
Spat on,
Chewed on,
Peed on,
Or pinched by tiny fingers.

Before I was a Mum…
I had complete control of my mind,
My thoughts.
My body,
And my time.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mum…
I never held down a screaming child,
So that doctors could do tests, or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mum…
I never held a sleeping baby just because.
I didn’t want to put it down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces, when I couldn’t stop the hurt.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mum…
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn’t know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn’t know that something so small Could make me feel so important.

Before I was a Mum…
I had never risen in the middle of the night .
Every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
The joy,
The love,
The heartache,
The wonderment,
Or the satisfaction of being a Moum.
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so
Much before I was a Mum!
