Oh the things we will do because of love!
Not only did I give you life
But I continue to feed you too
I’m your nurse, therapist, teacher
Uber driver, chef, maid, body guard
number one fan and your doctor too
I will sit in the sun and watch you chase your dreams
Constantly give you pep talks
Making sure you keep your head in the game
Oh the things we will do
Seating in the sun
Sweating enough to fill up a gallon or two while I watch you do what you do
Complaining in my head but never out loud
Due to fear of discouraging you
Whenever you look back
Right here is where I will always be
Poem inspired by my son’s nonstop summer football camps. We have traveled thousands of miles this month for our son and hitting the road again tomorrow.
Thank you for reading!
You could have chosen any blog to read but you chose mine and I’m honored

The joys and hardships of a mother’s unending love!
This hits home – all the many hats parents wear: proudly, willingly, in joy and celebration, in exhaustion and sorrow. This is beautiful, thank you for sharing your words.
Wow! That reminds me of the boy’s football summer camps and traveling all over Northern AZ. Yes, just like you, well, hundreds of miles, not thousands. Beautiful poem, Belladonna! ❤
Yes you understand. Football camps are a full time job. Just returned from a round trip that consist of 600 miles.
Indeed. Yep. I remember those days very well, indeed!
