Todays post in English – my second poem ( further down the side) is translated into English 🙂 Puh.. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
She was 2 years old yesterday – or maybe a little longer ago…
The day before she was a new born
I wanted her to stay little – she was always in a hurry to grow bigger…
«When can I start school mom?» she asked when she was 4 years old…
«NEVER» I silently replied in my head
When she was in elementary school she was eager to start junior high – I wanted her back in kinder garden…
When she was in junior high, she couldn’t wait to get to senior high…… I wanted her back in the stroller…
She was so eager – so enthusiastic – so lively and hungry for EVERYTHING in life – nothing came quick enough…..
I was nostalgic, this was the youngest of my 4children – my babygirl – EVERYTHING came to quickly!!
And now she is an adult – has moved out – and she is a soldier…
That was NOT my plan at all!!
But thats how it is… and maybe it is a good thing….. they are not suppose to follow our plan….. but their own…
Our job is to root them ahead – be a faithful audience and cheerleaders!
And I AM incredible proud of her – as of all my children.
She is smart – clever – strong – strong minded- stubborn and very skilled in what she does!
She is a fighter and YES, right now she is a soldier as well….
I cheer and cry at the same time
I am proud, but would like to have her back on my arm again
She is Juni, she is my babygirl, she is a soldier❤
You arrived with the weight of a feather, and a little wrinkle on your nose
Your cry was well known in my body, I loved your newborn toes
Your glance; a demand like a strong grip around my heart, like you would a sparkling toy
Happiness danced with my anxiety , the tears watered my joy
Deep in my heart, an eternal love for you live
I will forever be near, and what you need – I will give
To carry you those first years – was heavier than your weight
To be your guardian against all evil and bad, keep you fed from morning to late
That was my responsibility and I loved being your mother, dear!
But to do something wrong, a fatal mistake was always my biggest fear.
My naïve wish for you was a life with no problems or sorrow
And that you would forever stay at home and for others just to borrow
Life isn’t like that, I have to let you go
To loosen the grip isn’t easy, but I must – I know
But did you know that not one day passes, without me thinking of my little girl?
That just seeing your face brings out the smile in mine, and I treasure it like a pearl
Did you know that my life got more meaning after you came
And that my heart burst with love every time I look at you, the same
Life is a wonderful gift, but not always easy to live
You will experience that sometimes you are right – other times you have to give
Stand proud in your defeat, be humble when victory are on your side
be as just as you can – than you carry your self with pride
To be true, is to be the person YOU think you should be
Then one day you can look back with pride and joy, you’ll see.
To be your mother gives me the greatest joy
Even when we were visited by anger, maybe over a broken toy
I cant carry you around any longer – not decide what you should do
But I will always make sure that my love is obvious and declared to you
Whatever you do, wherever you go, or maybe just lead by the tide
My unconditionally love for you will always be at your side!
LOVE MOM ❤
