|July 2002: Matthew, age twenty months.|
Beyond anything the human mind comprehends,
Further than any great distance covered,
I awake each morning: rise, prepare
for another exhausting day of mothering.
|June 2004: Andrew, age fourteen months.|
And yet, without reservations, without hesitation,
I would (and) do it all,
again and again; day in, out
for all the millions of reasons
every other mother does what's necessary.
|October 2008: Joshua, age eighteen months.|
Our relentless love for our children,
and the light in their eyes,
as they experience a precious moment.
That light goes against all reason...
