To wean or not to wean? I contemplate time and again.
Its difficult on some days, some days it gets better.
Then I see my child and realize how fast she’s growing.
That I can’t stop the time so I can keep her little.
I know in time she will stop.
I know in time I let go.
When that time comes,
I will be happy, I will be sad. There will be a feeling I can’t explain.
I will be longing for the little child I nourished,
Wishing that time can take me back, and do it all over once again.
