Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart

Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart
When a baby arrives,
be it for a day, a month, a year or more,
or perhaps only a sweet flickering moment
-the fragile spark of a tender soul
the secret swell of a new pregnancy
the goldfish flutter known to only you
-you are unmistakeningly changed.
..the tiny footprints left behind on your heart
bespeak your name as Mother.

Found at La Belle Dame: Tiny Footprints on a Mother's Heart Charm - to help grieving mothers remember their babies. To keep their memories close, and to help them heal from their loss.

I've been thinking so much about you. I hope you're doing alright.

Thanks for thinking of me. I am coping, trying to keep busy.
