Best Poem of Elizabeth Russell

My Baby's Mother

There’s something inside me at last
For a long time there was nothing
I gaze at the reflection of my baby’s mother in the mirror
She raises her glass, drinks
And turns away
Pragmatism wins over introspection
Her glass is empty
She already loves her baby more than she has ever loved herself –
But will that be enough?
For him? For her?
She imagines how he will look when he is born
How she will dress him
What sort of man he will become
And knows he will be more than she ever was
Because she will love him
More than her mother ever could
She won’t ...

Marwee

My little dog
Who has spent her whole life loving us
Is dying
Her heart which has loved so freely
For so long
Is weakening
At least I know she is
Not dying
From a broken heart

[Hata Bildir]
