I wrote this some years ago, yet it is still relevant to me today…
There are so many things that mums and dads should say
But sometimes, we fail to say them in the way you need us to.
When your little heart broke today, I felt it too-like breaking glass, I shattered, helpless, as the pieces fell.
It hit me in spectacular fashion, that sometimes, I don’t have all the answers, and sometimes, I can’t fix it.
So I did the only thing I could do.
I lay with you.
I lay down with you on your little bed, and welcomed silence as I stroked your tear sodden cheek.
So soft it was, I didn’t realise how so, you, my little man, are but a babe in arms, your virgin soul, newly challenged by the devastation of disappointment.
There were no words- they felt weightless and empty in comparison to the energy that transpired in this moment.
