I didn't have to look into your eyes
to fall in love with you.
I didn't need to hear your cry
to know you loved me too.
I didn't need to hold your hand
to cherish you for always.
Within my womb, we shared our hearts.
You touched my soul.
You sweetened my spirit.
You gave me memories I'll always hold dear.
Yes, my heartaches since you departed too soon.
But a mother's love does not end with death.
For you are my child.
Forever my love is yours.
        -Kathy L. Schmucker






This Mother's Day, I hope that each of you will remember that you ARE mothers and that you love your babies just as much as any mother that has her child with her.  I believe that your child knew and felt your love while they were in your womb, and continue to feel it now and give it back to you.
