Mothers smiling at their babies
I cannot smile at mine
Parents cuddling their children
I cannot cuddle mine
Photos with their eyes so bright
His eyes are shut in mine
In this journey of parenthood
I have been left behind
*This is my first ever attempt at writing poetry. I got the idea from a writing prompt over at Mama's Losin' It! The prompt was to write a poem about that time you were left behind.
It's nice to stretch once in while, but I'm not so sure poetry is my strength.
