Being a NICU Mom can never be compared to any other traumatic experience.
A NICU Mom
feels happy for giving birth,
feels sad for it being a premature delivery,
feels terrible to see her little one suffer,
feels distressed unable to cope with the happenings,
feels the fear how and when will her baby recover and
feels lonely not able to bond with her tiny little warrior.
I have been a NICU Mom myself and have gone through those unforgettable and fearful days. I thought of penning down a poem ( or whatever it may look like 🙂 ) on reflecting the feelings of a Mom who is watching her baby fighting at the NICU.
So, here are the longings of a NICU Mom!!
The Longings of a NICU Mom
I was longing to carry a big tummy,
I was longing to get sick and weary,
I was longing to feel the little kicks,
I was longing to see my swollen legs,
My wishes reached God with a delay!
And You were budding in my womb everyday!!
I was longing to tear up in pain,
I was longing to brace you with my love chain,
I was longing to see your charming face,
I was longing to look at your divine smile,
This time God had a trick!
And You were born two months quick!!
I am longing to hear you cry ,
I am longing to hold you tight,
I am longing to see you smile in sleep,
I am longing to sense your hunger and feed,
I am longing to have sleepless nights,
I am simply longing to stay near you all the times,
My requests are in queue!
And God is yet to review!!
If you liked it, you are most welcome to share it !!
