I can’t even
I can’t even say it
That thing that no mom wants to admit to
That every mother sets out to avoid
Rules say no
Desperate need says yes.
Those days during a fight with childhood cancer
Where your body bears the imprint of that lovely hospital parent chair/bed thing
When you’ve read the book four times
When there’s no energy for games
Can this be considered a blessing
When it goes against every mothering plan you ever had
When you can quote them and
Hear the songs in your head
Until you want to scream
But it’s a relief
To see him laugh or at least smile
and to avoid thoughts that creep up on me
Yes, I can
Yes, I can say it
