    I just thought these were BEAUTIFUL :cloud9:

    I am your mother for now and all time,
    your heartbeat's rhythm, my maternal rhyme.

    So gently I hold you, caressed at my breast,
    so strong our bond, laying all fears to rest.

    Gazing at me your eyes hold such trust,
    nestled and nursing. I know that I must

    be giving you everything, fulfilling your needs,
    securing your happiness, planting the seeds,

    for days filled with joy, as you coo like a dove,
    for a lifetime of health, a legacy of love.

    And this one about weaning I LOVED:

    I know I look so big to you,
    maybe I seem too big for the needs I have.

    But no matter how big we get,
    we still have needs and they are important to us.
    I know that our relationship is growing and changing,
    but I still need you.

    I need your warmth and closeness,
    especially at the end of the day
    when we snuggle up in bed.

    Please don't get to busy for us to nurse.
    I know you think I can be patient,
    or find something to take the place of nursing:
    A book, a glass of something,

    But nothing can take your place when I need you.
    Sometimes just cuddling up with you,
    having you near me is enough.

    I guess I am growing and becoming independent,
    but please be there.

    This bond we have is strong and so important to me.
    Please don't break it abruptly.

    Wean me gently, because
    I am your mother, and my heart is tender.

    I LOVE that i honestly thought it was about a kid at first :cry:
