Part of the Motherhood Print Collection, this original poem by Laura, founder of The Key to it All explores the beautiful bond between mother and child and is a celebration of nurture.
The text reads:
You clutch your dimpled arms around my neck
The gossamer smoothness of your skin, as unblemished as your sunny soul
Your sticky face (how - you’ve only just had a bath) squashes against mine,
Your hot minty breath warming my nape, dear heart…
Your breathing slows, and calms and deepens
All is calm, all is bright.*
And then the magic happens.
I feel our cocoon spinning around us
A golden thread, that glows and grows
that spins and weaves
that supports and soothes
my heart so heavy with love and peace
my soul shining with a mother’s fire
and there’s the ache, the bittersweet
because the cocoon is weaving tighter
but I know you have to go and grow and glow
to leave my nest and follow your smile
but just for now my darling boy
our cocoon is spun and hums with the strength of an infinite
“I love you”s and
“twinkle twinkle little star”*
how I wonder what you are
each and every day
my sunny soul
*to be sung, should you so feel like it.
