Dearest Mama, Thank You

Dearest Mama,

Thank you for giving me your milk, it was my favourite thing.

I loved to be near you, I felt calm and safe and happy.

I loved when you stroked my face and we looked at each other for hours.

I’m sorry sometimes I was a bit pinchy, or would fidget, I didn’t mean to hurt you, it’s just that your milk was so magical it made me sleepy.

The dreams I had that started with your milk were the sweetest.

Thank you for stopping your world to feed me, I’m so little that I won’t really remember, but I hope that you do, for always. x
