Dear Momma

 

Hi there miss maybe missus. 
My name is Jay. 
You don't know me at all.
But you will after today.
I know you're scared,
I know you're irate,
I know you're so worried.
And have a lot on your plate. 
This isn't your choice
Or maybe it was. 
But you feel helpless 
And can't reason this cause.
You're hurting and sick
Hopefully this will help.
A wake up call,
or maybe just a yelp.
Go get clean, 
I believe in you. 
Find a good therapist 
I use one too. 
What's her favorite color
Who is his sport team? 
Do you want daily updates? 
Or just the weekly theme? 
You're her momma.
I can't ever replace that. 
But maybe we can help each other.
I won't let you fall flat. 
I've been a nanny. 
I'm already an aunt. 
We can't have our own baby. 
So helping with yours isn't scant. 
I'll love him like my own. 
I love you too. 
You brought him to me. 
And a few friends anew. 
You can do this. 
You can learn and grow.
I want them to love us both. 
So much more than you know. 
Thank you for accepting,
For dealing with this strife.
It will help you and I
And may even save your child's life. 
You're so brave.
Thanks for letting me be
A coparent to your baby
And helping raise your prodigy. 
You can do it. 
I'll help you stay on track. 
I love your little one. 
I want you to get him back.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
