Hopeless

Waking each morning to hungry baby cries is the highlight of her day.  Holding, feeding and loving this miracle of need is who she is now.  Mothering is second nature to her and the job she must perform to pay bills is less than a close second.

Answering phones, filing, smiling for 8 hours frees her up for the chubby needy chunk of love she lives for. Months ago she walked the streets looking for what is now  waiting for her at the beginning and end of every day.

Looking for love is fruitless, just wait for it patiently.
