Here I am a mother of a beautiful baby,

six hours away from my own mother.

The baby is growing within me and so

is my desire to move back home.

I fear the questions I'll have that can only

be answered when moms right there-

will my child know that I love her?

I am full of joy for the months to come,

to see our family come together as one.

But deep inside, stored and locked away-

are tears of the family that is mine

six hours away.
