WE will get it back
The smoldering looks
The long intimacy in the sack
It is not so text book
When you feel old and dragged
Breasts a little bit sagged
When you feel un-pretty
When you feel you’ve got a grown belly
No sleep and no time
No more love poems we once wrote that rhymed
Dates cut short with a screaming bub
And a toddler who wants a back rub
Cant afford nice dresses
All the money goes to their needs and to clean their messes
But take heart, oh dear
Do not be sad or fear
It’s only a time to enjoy this phase
The cuddles and play time and the kids we raise
Let us hold on to our sweet love
There is plenty to go around
Let laughter and joy abound
One day they will go
And I am sure will miss them so
That will be another chapter
To get it back
The time when we wont be out of whack
To sit together and watch a movie peacefully
To travel maybe and try new things incidentally
We will get it back
But today, truly, there is nothing we lack.

  • Well said. :)


  • What a beautiful poem about Motherhood. While it would be ideal to gain back a body and some resemblance of normality after children, I have realised that the things some people may consider sacrifices as a gain in life… :-)


  • I enjoyed reading this. A bit different and yet positive that things will be okay. Would be lovely if I had someone that I was sharing the experience with. Maybe one day! Thanks for sharing.


  • A great poem but I also agree with the other Mums that our life is just perfect with the kids and I would not change a thing!


  • great poem you have written.


  • That is very clever. Did you write it?.
    I’m happy with my life since kids

    • I love my life since kids – a whole new dimension to life.


  • Yes – sometimes it takes a while.


  • Thanks for sharing your poem – good on your for being creative. Intimacy changes when you have children as does a relationship. I love all of the changes and strengthening of intimacy and relationship. I love moving forward along the life journey.


  • Interesting poem – did you write it yourself. Personally, I don’t want things to ever return to how they were before children, I love how things includes relationships and bodies mature together.
