Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

You have to grieve normal

I advised as she cried

You have to grieve normal

Or you’ll feel like you’ve died.


He’s not what you wanted?

She’s broken, you say?

He’s medically fragile

She can’t learn to play?


Rage, wail and sob

Shake your fist at the sky

Wrestle with the Almighty

And beg for a why!


Cry in the shower

Breathe through the fear

Don’t abandon yourself

And keep your loves near


Let company in

Lest misery take a toll

Eat food and sip wine

It’s good for the soul


Smile if you can

If you can’t, no big deal

They’ll be brighter days

Brighter days when you heal


These children are God’s lessons

I don’t say this in vain

These children will teach us

Through all of the pain


That life is much more

than pride, looks, or wealth

Life is joy, peace, & love

Kindness and health


So take a deep breath

You’ve got this, I swear

For the Almighty appointed you

A fierce mama bear ❤️
