Mother Is Child

There is a child in me who will never be born.

A little girl with dark hair and serious eyes.

I lost her to a hysterectomy seven years ago.

I lost her to a mind made ‘bad’ decades ago.

But…

Did I lose her at all?

Doesn’t she simply live within me still?

I am the child I’ll never have.

How bittersweet is that?

Until tomorrow…

Chloe
