To all the mums – you deserve to find a moment of peace at least once a day. You are all amazing. May you find a space…
Find a space.
Upon a rock.
Against a tree.
Beneath your noisy children three.
Ignore your ears.
And all the voices.
For just a moment, shut off your mind.
Pull your eyelids low, unwind.
And even if you cannot spare
Some momentary silence
Even if you are not able
With all your work and kids and the breakfast table.
Keep going with your daily chores.
And inside your precious heart…
… Just sit.
To the lover of your soul.
