The words finally formed. Two years ago on Mothers Day.
As for my own mother, she gave me the best gift. My life. And the greatest sacrifice. Her own.
I can never take this mission of motherhood for granted.
I have my very own mother for a hero.
Ironic how after so many years I still long for something I’ve never known… something I’ve never felt… something I never experienced… someone I never touched. I guess it is safe to say now that there is still that hole that will never be filled, a wound that would never heal in time. And funny that it took these many years for this child to verbalize it…
It echoes in my heart. I celebrate acceptance.
You birthed, nurtured and loved four children before me.
You taught many.
But mother, you never held me.
I never heard your heartbeat once.
I would never be able to comprehend the pain my brothers and sisters lived through…
But before your last breath~ the GREATEST LEGACY.
The Greatest Love.
Thank you mother. You’re in my heart forever.
~The Fifth Child
