little ones

there was a 
huge storm
today
and 
i was terrified
and worried sick
not because
of the immediate danger.
i didn't fear
for my own life
i worried like
a mother
apart from her child.
i wanted you
to be
safe
and
when you were
i wanted to 
hold you close
and cover your face
with
kisses.
my someday
little ones are
going to
have
a
very
affectionate
mother.

The End
