NICU mum I salute you | for mothers day

NICU mum I salute you!

NICU mum, yes you.

Sitting beside the incubator, there are things you ought know.

 

You are someone very special, someone immensely strong.

You may not know it straight away, but NICU mum it’s true.

There are times you may feel helpless, times you may seem lost.

NICU is a world away from where from where you thought you’d be.

 

NICU mum you’re special, NICU mum you’re strong.

You may not know it straight away, but I’m telling you it’s true.

Your baby is amazing; tiny fingers, nose and toes.

Not many parents get to say – I see you as you grow.

 

Watching and waiting day after day takes courage, you must know.

Forward steps and backward steps, the NICU road is tough.

Each day you accomplish the hardest; how to say goodbye.

Going home, emptied armed – it’s okay to cry.

 

NICU mum I see you, battling brave and strong,

Even on your darkest days I know you’ll carry on.

Your journey’s not for the faintest of hearts,

Shock, uncertainty, grief and loss – and that is just the start.

Your baby shows you courage, you follow in their lead.

Nappy changes, stick thin legs, wire and tubes and feeds.

How strong you are in what you do,

– a mother in NICU.

 

 

NICU mum I salute you!

NICU mum, yes you.

You are someone very special, someone immensely strong.

Know this now and in the years that come, you’re one amazing mum!
