The Air I Breathe by Matasha Lee
They formed in my womb, separately,
Each bringing their own gift of love and nourishment to my soul.
They fulfill me.
They empower me.
I don’t know why when they are away I can’t sleep, don’t want to eat,
And my day is long without them.
I’ve grown as a woman with them.
They helped me each step of the way.
It’s funny to grow up with two more of you,
They see you more as a sister than a mom.
We make mistakes together, we get through rough times together.
They are all of me, and I, of them.
Thank you Lord for bringing them into my life,
For forming what I needed to continue to be a better me,
And placing them inside of me to feel human life.
I went through much pain to birth new existence into the world,
You entrusted me with their beings!
You gave me four foot prints to help create a destiny.
Thank you for the air I breathe,
Thank you for our lives,
Mommy loves you, Amelia and Sean,
Mommy loves you for life.
