My Mummy Heart
I had a heart I thought was full of love.
And then I met you.
And it grew.
I had a hand that I didn’t know was empty
Until I felt yours in mine.
Such a precious time.
I didn’t know how fierce I could be
Until it came to protecting you.
My courage grew.
I thought I had seen everything the world has to offer
Until I looked at it with you.
I saw life anew.
I had a heart I thought was full of love
Until I met you
And my mummy heart grew.
