I Can Because I Am A Mom First In All Things

I can stand strong by my child when he gets hurt and needs another ER visit.

I can stand strong by my child when she has a big school project and needs my help.

I can stand strong  by my child when her favorite animal passes unexpectedly.

I can stand strong by my child when a girl breaks his heart.

I can stand strong by my child when another adult disappoints them.

I can stand strong by my child when he gets in trouble at school.

I can stand strong by my child when he lays hurt in a hospital.

I can stand strong by my child when he relearns how to walk.

I can stand strong by my child when no one wants to give him an education.

I can stand strong by my child when someone tries to rip him from my home.

I can stand strong by my child when he loses his job.

I can stand strong by my child when they are forced to do something that scares them.

I can stand strong by my child when they are faced with a scary legal court situation.

I can stand strong by my child when they are hurting and scared.

But at night I will crumble to my bed, broken and weak.

And if that child cries out in the night, I will rise from my broken and weak state to stand strong by their side.
