For my little guy

 

I wish I could make it better
when you fall and bump your sore little mouth
adding insult to the injury of impending teeth

 

I wish I could make it better
when you are so tired but can’t sleep
All I can do is hold you

 

I wish I could make it better
someday
when your heart breaks

 

from
teasing
casual cruelty
stinging disappointment
the death of your pet
the rejection of someone dear
the loss of a hope or dream or expectation

 

All your pain

 

I wish I could make it better
as easily then as I can now

 

with a kiss
and a cuddle
“oh, look! what’s the kitty doing?”

 

I can’t
It makes me want to cry and hold you closer
take you into my heart to be safe

 

safe from slings and arrows
outrageous fortune

 

I can’t
But I will love you with as much strength as is in me
Which is a lot
when it comes to you

 

I can’t make it better
But I will be here
by your side
always

 

My dear one

 

My beautiful boy

 

I love you

    Why do you always insist on making me cry? You’re the best darn mommy ever.

    And just being there and loving deeply DOES make it better. Not completely well, but far better.
