I Worry -A Poem by Kim Uliana

Spread the love

I’m a mom & I worry. I worry every day.
I worry when you’re sitting still.
I worry while you play.
I watch you breathe as you sleep at night.
It eases my fearful mind.
I wonder if I can keep you safe in a world
that can be so unkind.
Am I being too strict with you? Am I being too soft?
Every choice I have to make leaves me feeling lost.
When I’m not with you, I say a little prayer.
I pray that you make good choices
even when I am not there.
I’ll worry about you day & night
until the day I dieā€¦
and then I will keep on worrying
looking down at you from the sky.
-Kim Uliana
