Motherhood defines me,
but often undermines me.

My fears for you are almost tangible.
For your happiness, I feel responsible.

Attempts to protect you, even in adulthood.
Are often fruitless and misunderstood.

The balance between friend and mother.
I struggle daily to discover.

This relationship I would never change.
It's a favourite with which I engage.

From every test and challenge I will recover.
To continue the joy of being your Mother.
