A Mother's Day Poem
Kim Maycock 
In memory of her son, Darius Andrew Maycock 
So many months I carried you
And I couldn’t wait to see
What a wonderful little person
You would turn out to be.
I had my dreams of how it would be
Just to watch you grow
But now those dreams have faded
Because I shall never know.
For God in His great wisdom
Carried you away with love
Now the rocking chair sits silent
And the lullabies won’t be quiet.
They flow like the river roars
And I know my life is forever changed
To be the same no more
I must be a special mother.
Because I have been set apart
Some mothers carry their children in their arms –
but I carry you in my heart.
