For Rozanne

 

For Rozanne

You struggled and laboured long

But I think you knew

The little one inside you

Was coming to meet you.

 

You endured and were patient

But I think you felt

The touch of God on you

As His miracle of birth and new life took place through you.

 

You were in pain

But I think you knew

The joy of having birthed

A precious child of your heart.

 

The pain did not end

But I think your heart sang

With the joy of being a mommy.

 

Through the confusion and pain

Of leaving your Ian and your Abi

I know you thanked God for them.
 

You had to give up the joy of raising your daughter

But I think you saw the joy of your life through hers.

 

No one but a mother could understand

The precious moments that God gave you

And the greatest honour of laying down your life

for your child.

 

And though you didn’t have a choice

You were completely

Being a MOTHER.
