This beautiful poem was written by a very special Mother and strong women who has attended our monthly support group. Thank you Kandy B for sharing this inspirational message.
Every Mother in This Place Has a Smile Upon Her Face
Every Mother in this place, has a smile upon her face
Yet every Mother’s heart is breakin’, a little piece of soul is takin’
Getting up every morning trying to survive, just wondering how to stay alive
Still, every Mother in this place, has a smile upon her face
If we could go back all those years, we would have never thought these fears
A knock on the door, a cry for help, and we can’t even barely take care of ourselves
Yet, every Mother in this place, has a smile upon her face
But when we look deep inside, what happened to our joy and pride?
If we could do it all over again, what would we have done different, why and when?
I don’t have any answers, I don’t know where to start, all I know is that my baby boy is in my heart
So, just like every Mother in this place, I keep a smile upon my face
So as I sit here and tell you my story, don’t feel bad for me or feel sorry
Instead with God’s grace and mercy too, we are going to beat this and make it thru
Every Mother in this place, keeps a smile upon her face.
We are Mothers, and women, and strong, and we all know where we belong
God gave us this precious gift, and I don’t know why, I don’t have all the answers, we just gotta try
And every Mother in this place, still has a beautiful smile upon her face.
