I see you there new Mummy, I recognise the smile
It’s stuck there like a mask and it has been there for a while
But underneath the grin I know you’re tired and you’re weary
You show the world your game face, never let them see you teary.
Your baby is your everything, no doubt about your care
But something isn’t right and you’re just terrified to share.
But if you did you’d find a world so full of Mums like you
Who sometimes cry and shake and often don’t know what to do.
It’s hard when nights are endless and screams ring round the walls
And yet you’re up at dawn to dry the tears and break the falls
Your thoughts are filled with fear and doubt and endless, aching worry
Your wishing all the days away and yet you fear the hurry.
Please know you’re not alone in this, in fact you’re with the crowd
It’s something that we all should learn to speak about, and loud!
There is no shame, no judgement, in taking time for you
In fact it is the best thing that a brand new Mum can do.
So hold your loved ones tight dear, help is on the way
It really is that easy, you only had to say
There’s other Mums around you, who’ll never let you fall
They’re there to tell their stories and guide you through it all…
