A Mother's Journey Through Postnatal Depression and Finding Strength in the Aftermath

The storm has passed, but not without its mark,

The aftermath of postnatal depression leaves a lingering dark.

A mother's love, once lost, now slowly returning,

A newfound strength, though at times still concerning.

A tiny life still in her care,

Overwhelming joy, mixed with lingering fear.

Tears still flow, but less often now,

A heart less heavy, a mindless clouded somehow.

Days blend into sleepless nights,

But she's learning to navigate new sights.

Questions still arise, doubts persist,

But she's stronger now, she can resist.

In her arms, a precious soul,

A little one who makes her whole.

A fierce love, a bond unbreakable,

A mighty force, a strength unshakable.

With each passing day, the light grows,

The sun shines brighter, as hope bestows.

Joy and love, now found in abundance,

A new season, a sense of balance.

A mother's love, a resilient force,

Conquers depression, and paves a new course.

A journey long, but worth the fight,

A testament to a mother's might.
