    This is a tribute to all the single mothers out there and the supposedly 'educated' men who think our precious children belong in the 'baggage' section!!!! You know who you boys are....
    And girls...I think we all feel the same about those little angels

    MOTHER TO CHILD

    Like the wind through the autumn leaves
    And the whisper of a summer breeze
    I come to you
    I come to you

    Like the sting of a lover's tale
    The sweet song of a nightingale
    I sing to you
    I sing to you

    Like the cry of a broken dove
    And the ache of a mother's love
    I'd die for you
    I'd die for you

    Like the joy I'd never dreamed
    The true gift that was meant for me
    I thank God for you
    I thank God for you

    And God knows
    How much I love you
    Oh, how I love you

    Oh...single daddies, this is for you too :-)

    thats beautiful. my daughter is a single mom of 2 beautiful little girls and she has heard that line before - "what do i care what happens to these kids, they are not mine". I'm sure it happens to guys too, but i think it probably happens to women more. And most women just shut down and turn off when they hear that type of comment. This "baggage" is the most precious baggage you can have.

    this pic is of my kids and grandkids, minus one that is still in the oven, due in Oct. I love them babies!

    Hi Mimi,
    Another lovely poem, you have so much talent as well as beauty and a busy single mum too..well, as a possible partner for any man..how could he ask for any better? you will have had many more life experiences than most...motherhood being one of the most wonderful of all experiences..

    I am a single mum of four children..two married girls,and one beautiful grandchild, I have an older son just home from University..(that was so very difficult to help him through the expense of getting through 3 yrs at University as a single mum)and last but not least an 8 yr old son..

    I am 53 yrs old and I find that many men of the same age have just found the freedom they have been longing for..'the day that the last bird has flown the nest' as an older mum I have the problem of older men who are not interested in 'starting again' so to speak...in the rearing of another youngster!!

    I'm so proud of my young son..he's a well mannered and polite and absolutely lovely young lad.Everyone who meets him congratulates me on the way I've brought him up.I don't consider him as baggage at all..we're both first class all the way!!! Someday someone will see us both in that light, until then we're as happy as can be on our own..

    Good luck Mimi
