My worth does not come from my job that I love,⁠⠀
or my wonderful, loving marriage.⁠⠀
I will not be magically fulfilled one day if I am a mother to a child on earth. ⁠⠀ Are you surprised? ⁠⠀

In the flowers I see you.

In our stories I hear you.

In my tears I taste you.

You are a part of me

My arms will forever ache to hold you agai...
