Mommy's Milk Heals

Photo and poem by Danelle Frisbie © 2012


When I'm lonely, sad or blue,
Mommy's milk heals.

When I'm hungry, or thirsty too,
Mommy's milk heals.

When the day's been long and very hard,
Mommy's milk heals.

When I get a scratch out in the yard,
Mommy's milk heals.

When I'm playing and get knocked down,
Mommy's milk heals. 

When I'm not really sure about that silly clown...
Mommy's milk heals.

When the day is rainy or full of sun,
Mommy's milk heals.

When I feel I'm not her only one,
Mommy's milk heals.

When I want to run away and hide,
Mommy's milk heals.

When it's s-c-a-r-y on that bumpy ride,
Mommy's milk heals.

When I'm sick and not feeling well,
Mommy's milk heals.

When the bump on my knee begins to swell,
Mommy's milk heals.

When to Grandma I say my last goodbyes,
Mommy's milk heals.

When life's confusing through my eyes,
Mommy's milk heals.

No matter my need
Or my condition -
Mommy's right there
Without hesitation. 

Her milk grows me up!
Keeps me safe ~ happy too.
All the days till I'm ready,
It's her big 'I Love You!'

~ Danelle Frisbie

    3. Let your child lead,.....I still bf my 5 yearsold, because she needs it (so she tells me) and lots of others tell me is is odd, insane, unnatural,weird, wrong, for my own pleasure, to keep her to myselve, to keep her dependant. But when I look at my little girl nursing I know I ma doing the right thing.
