Everyday I ask myself was I the best mum I could be today
Did I help you learn what you needed to through play,
If you could tell me would you say that I could of done more,
I do try to play with you but sometimes you just want to keep lining your toys on the floor.
It kills me that you get so angry and upset,
I know I haven’t got it all figured out yet,
I would love to be able to see the world through your eyes,
To know what is hurting when I can’t stop your cries.
Sometimes I grieve for the things you will not do,
Even though I would never change one thing about you,
It just makes me sad to see you struggle and regress,
I feel like my heart is being ripped in two whenever you are in distress.
I love watching you jumping and spinning around,
I love that even with no words your voice is my favourite sound,
Your such a happy boy who deserves the best,
Your a star Isaac who shines so much brighter than all the rest.
I hope you know that even when I am tired and stressed,
The day you were born we were truly blessed,
Tonight I will wrap my arms around you baby and just hold you tight,
There’s always tomorrow for me to get it right ❤️
