For Those Who Have Been There...

Love disappoints sometimes,
But through its hurt we find
Its lessons teach us how to be
Compassionate and kind
For as the heart surrenders
What hand cannot constrain
We sympathize with others
Who bear this kindred pain
We wear a gentler bearing
We learn a deeper care
And truer understanding
For those who have been there

It's comforting to chat over coffee or tea with other mothers who are or have been 'There':)
