Nursing you

Unknown sweet soul

 

I will

Give of myself to you

 

You, undernourished

Maybe unwanted

 

I will

Give of myself to you

 

Perhaps your mother could not

But wanted it for you

That’s ok

I will

 

Nothing so intimate

Devine right of woman’s gift

 

Nothing so cold

As the machine that allows me

To give to you this anonymous gift

 

You- too small to know or remember

Exactly what you need

But cannot ask

 

Me- full of love for you

My unknown recipient

Sweet sharing at its purest

 

I will never hold you

Nor see your sweet face

But I will know, and feel satisfied

And so will you

 

Nursing you

Unknown sweet soul

 

I will

Give of myself to you

 

That you may have a

Stronger start

Author's Note

My Fair Lady
One of the best years of my life... the year I donated breastmilk to our local hospital Neo Natatal Intensive Care Unit. A personal commitment goal realized, and accomplished.

That was a wonderful gift you gave, and in my eyes, a wonderful gift from nature you've been given. Us menfolk shall (obviously) never have such an ability to provide nourishment of that kind.

it's a very sweet and inspiring poem :)

The tenderness of this piece spoke volumes, and the expression of the act of help that it was more than a donation it was a gift and one that cant be outweighed.

I never know that this can be true, for a woman to give from her own in such a willing and beautiful way, you keep surprising me . xx

what a selfless act..I wish we had had a scheme here when I was feeding, what a feeling of fulfilment that must have given you..
