Part of the Motherhood series, this original poem by Laura, founder of The Key to it All encapsulates a mother's complex and multi-faceted feelings as their child drifts off to sleep. This poem will resonate with any parent and makes the perfect gift to yourself or for a loved one. Purchase on its own or alongside some more of the Motherhood series. 

The text reads:

I watched her a lot. Will her eyes ever stop their darting,

will her mouth ever soften, will her hands ever rest,

and if not - what will bring her quiet?

Was she overtired, not tired enough, overstimulated,

should she have run around more?

(did I mean to have treated her like a puppy?)

Did we not read enough? Did we read too much?

Did she need more than this, more than this love I gave her?

Just then her face softened. Her eyes grew heavy.

Her endless eyelashes blinked, danced, hovered,

like butterflies, flitting, fluttering - closing, closing…

…open…

 closing…

sinking, sinking, until her butterfly wings fluttered no more.

And now?

Rest - rest my dearest child, and dream
