for young mothers

your arrival is music
to my strained ears
relief for my nerves
that threaten to pop
the hair out of my head.
you’re the sanctuary of my mind
which struggles not to leave home
to escape the cries of your offspring

for every young mother of a newborn
who is blessed to have her mate
come home of an evening
