Healing with Love

A mother's battle and strength, a path to recovery

Why do you cry, my weary soul?

I've fought long battles paid the toll.

Will you now find the peace you seek?

I yearn for strength, though I feel weak.

What held you down during these painful years?

Indigestion, vomit, endless tears.

Did you dream of days outside, carefree?

I missed so much; it tormented me.

Do you blame yourself for what's been lost?

I see my children and count the cost.

Will you recover, rise, and heal?

I want to, but my wounds are real.

What of the joy that lies ahead?

Three children’s love, their lives I've led.

Can they still see the strength within you?

They give me courage unyielding will.

Will your body ache forevermore?

Three C-sections, tooth pain—now one surgery more.

Do you regret the choices made?

I carry guilt, but it's started to fade.

Will you soon be active, strong, and free?

I hope for that, my family needs me.

What keeps your spirit burning bright?

My children’s smiles, their future’s light.

Can you find rest, let healing begin?

With their love, I'll fight and win.

💏💏 It means a lot that you read my story. Your kind words, hearts, pledges, and tips motivate me to write more. Thank you so much for your support. 💏💏


P.S. I was operated on almost 10 days ago for gallbladder removal. I wrote this poem to strengthen myself; it is a dialogue of myself with me.
